Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is known as the most fatal chronic neurodegenerative disease in adults along with progressive loss of memory and other cognitive function disorders. Cyclin-dependent kinase 5 (Cdk5), a unique member of the cyclin-dependent kinases (Cdks), is reported to intimately associate with the process of the pathogenesis of AD. Cdk5 is of vital importance in the development of CNS and neuron movements such as neuronal migration and differentiation, synaptic functions, and memory…

Role of Cdk5 in Amyloid-beta Pathology of Alzheimer's Disease.
TLDR
Given that the accumulation and deposition of Aβ derived from APP is a common hinge point in the numerous pathogenic hypotheses of AD, figuring out the specific mechanisms of Cdk5 influence on Aβ pathology will deepen the understanding of AD.

TLDR
This review covers what is known about the role of these three groups of kinases in the brain and in the pathogenesis of the two neurodegenerative disorders and the potential of targeting GSK3, p38 MAPK and CDKS as effective therapeutics.
Physiological and pathological roles of Cdk5: potential directions for therapeutic targeting in neurodegenerative disease.
TLDR
The present review highlights the importance of Cdk5 activity and function in the brain and demonstrates how deregulation of Ckk5 can contribute to the development of neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
Targeting CCR3 to Reduce Amyloid-β Production, Tau Hyperphosphorylation, and Synaptic Loss in a Mouse Model of Alzheimer’s Disease
TLDR
The age-related increase in CCL11 may be a risk factor of AD, and antagonizing CCR3 may bring therapeutic benefits to AD.
Metformin Ameliorates Synaptic Defects in a Mouse Model of AD by Inhibiting Cdk5 Activity
TLDR
An unidentified role of metformin in suppressing Cdk5 hyper-activation and thus preventing AD pathogenesis is discovered and it is suggested that met formin is a potential promising AD therapeutic drug.
Neuroimmune Dynamics in Alzheimer’s Disease Progression
TLDR
Three mechanisms could explain the onset and progression of AD, opening a new projection to focus research on therapeutic agents that could modulate the interactions between tau and microglial cells.

Cdk5 deregulation in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease.
Physiological and pathological phosphorylation of tau by Cdk5
TLDR
This article summarizes the physiological and pathological phosphorylation of tau via Cdk5, a member of the cyclin-dependent kinases, which is activated in post-mitotic neurons via the neuron-specific activator p35 and plays a critical role in brain development and physiological synaptic activity.
Cdk5 activity in the brain – multiple paths of regulation
TLDR
Specific modulation of these protein regulators is expected to provide alternative strategies for the development of effective therapeutic interventions that are triggered by deregulation of Cdk5, including several recently identified protein activators and inhibitors that control its activity in normal and diseased brains.
Neurodegeneration in an Aβ‐induced model of Alzheimer’s disease: the role of Cdk5
TLDR
Data demonstrate that Cdk5 plays a pivotal role in tau phosphorylation, cell cycle induction, synaptotoxicity, and apoptotic death in postmitotic neurons exposed to Aβ peptides in vivo, acting as a link between diverse neurotoxic pathways of AD.
Silencing of CDK5 Reduces Neurofibrillary Tangles in Transgenic Alzheimer's Mice
TLDR
Silencing of CDK5 reduces the phosphorylation of tau in primary neuronal cultures and in the brain of wild-type C57BL/6 mice, and the knockdown strongly decreased the number of neurofibrillary tangles in the hippocampi of triple-transgenic mice.
Modulation of aberrant CDK5 signaling rescues impaired neurogenesis in models of Alzheimer's disease
TLDR
Data suggest that theCDK5 signaling pathway has a critical role in maintaining the integrity of NPCs and neuronal maturation in the adult hippocampus, and potential therapeutic approaches could focus on modulating the aberrant activity of CDK5 to target the neurogenic and neurodegenerative alterations in AD.
Epigenetic modulation of Cdk5 contributes to memory deficiency induced by amyloid fibrils
TLDR
The results elucidate the potential epigenetic mechanism underlying the upregulated expression of Cdk5 induced by amyloid fibrils and provided novel insights into the pathogenic mechanism of Alzheimer’s disease.
Cdk5: one of the links between senile plaques and neurofibrillary tangles?
TLDR
Evidence that suggests deregulation of Cdk5 activity in AD by virtue of calpain cleavage of its activator p35 to p25 will be discussed.
