Target

  • FunctionMay be directly involved in regulating the cleavage of polar spindle microtubules and is a key regulator for the onset of cytokinesis during mitosis. Component of the chromosomal passenger complex (CPC), a complex that acts as a key regulator of mitosis. The CPC complex has essential functions at the centromere in ensuring correct chromosome alignment and segregation and is required for chromatin-induced microtubule stabilization and spindle assembly. Phosphorylates 'Ser-10' and 'Ser-28' of histone H3 during mitosis. Required for kinetochore localization of BUB1 and SGOL1. Interacts with INCENP.
  • Tissue specificityHigh level expression seen in the thymus. It is also expressed in the spleen, lung, testis, colon, placenta and fetal liver. Expressed during S and G2/M phase and expression is up-regulated in cancer cells during M phase.
  • Involvement in diseaseNote=Disruptive regulation of expression is a possibile mechanism of the perturbation of chromosomal integrity in cancer cells through its dominant-negative effect on cytokinesis.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Ser/Thr protein kinase family. Aurora subfamily.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Ubiquitinated by different BCR (BTB-CUL3-RBX1) E3 ubiquitin ligase complexes. Ubiquitinated by the BCR(KLHL9-KLHL13) E3 ubiquitin ligase complex, ubiquitination leads to removal from mitotic chromosomes and is required for cytokinesis. During anaphase, the BCR(KLHL21) E3 ubiquitin ligase complex recruits the CPC complex from chromosomes to the spindle midzone and mediates the ubiquitination of AURKB. Ubiquitination of AURKB by BCR(KLHL21) E3 ubiquitin ligase complex may not lead to its degradation by the proteasome.
  • Cellular localizationNucleus. Chromosome. Chromosome > centromere. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > spindle. Localizes on chromosome arms and inner centromeres from prophase through metaphase and then transferring to the spindle midzone and midbody from anaphase through cytokinesis. Colocalized with gamma tubulin in the mid-body.

  • Anti-Aurora B antibody [mAbcam 3609] (ab3609) at 1/1000 dilution + HeLa whole cell lysate at 1 µg/ml

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 39 kDa
  • SKN-SH cells were fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde for 10 mins, permeabilized in PBS-0.5% Triton X-100 for 5 mins and incubated for 30 minutes with ab3609 (1/50 dilution). The slides were blocked with 4mg/ml BSA. The slides were rinsed once in PBS-Triton (0.1%), twice in PBS then incubated with the secondary antibody for 30 mins. The DNA is stained with DAPI (blue). Staining with ab3609 can be seen in green.

    Paraffin embedded human liver tumor tissue was incubated with ab3609 (1/35 dilution) for 30 mins at room temperature. Antigen retrieval was performed by heat induction in citrate buffer pH 6.

    ab3609 was tested in a tissue microarray (TMA) containing a wide range of normal and cancer tissues as well as a cell microarray consisting of a range of commonly used, well characterised human cell lines. Further images can be found at www.proteinatlas.org

  • ab3609 (1/200) staining Aurora B in HeLa cells (green). Cells were fixed in paraformaldehyde, permeabilised with 0.5% Triton X-100/PBS and counterstained with DAPI in order to highlight the nucleus/ chromosomes (red). For further experimental details please refer to Abreview.
