Protocol Id: 10
Aurora A/AIK Antibody detects endogenous levels of total Aurora A/AIK protein. The antibody may cross-react with AIK3.
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to the amino terminus of human Aurora A/AIK. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Aurora A (AIK) is a cell cycle-regulated Ser/Thr protein kinase that is overexpressed in many tumor cell lines (1-3). Phosphorylation of Aurora A at Thr288 within the kinase activation loop results in a significant increase in its activity and may target the protein for proteasomal degradation during mitosis (4). The closely-related kinase Aurora B (AIM1) has been implicated in multiple mitotic events (5), and siRNA silencing of Aurora B expression results in reduced histone H3 phosphorylation, aberrant chromosome alignment/segregation, and altered survivin localization (6).
