CycT2 is one of three cyclins that can form a heterodimer with cyclin-dependent kinase 9 (CDK9). The heterodimer is known as positive elongation factor b (P-TEFb) and is responsible for the phosphophorylation of Ser2 of the heptad repeat in the C-terminal domain of RNA polymerase II as well as the negative elongation factors DSIF (hSpt4/hSpt5) and NELF. Phosphorylation of RNA polymerase II and the negative elongation factors by P-TEFb promotes elongation. CycT2 contains a leucine rich domain capable of binding to the C-terminal domain of RNA polymerase II.
