The activity of cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs), following its name, is highly dependent on the attachment of cyclins. Cyclins are protein molecules whose concentration fluctuates throughout the whole cell cycle. With high cyclin concentration, CDKs also reach the optimum activity as MPF or M-phase promoting factor, named as such since its activity promotes the cell's entry to its M phase.
