Application Abreviews Notes
ELISA 1/1000.
WB 1/100 - 1/500. Detects a band of approximately 36 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 36 kDa).
ICC/IF 1/100 - 1/500.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
  • Application notesIs unsuitable for IP.
  • Target

    • FunctionMay play a part in organizing microtubules in relation to the function of the centrosome/spindle pole during mitosis. May also contribute to the regulation of chromosome segregation and cytokinesis.
    • Tissue specificityIsoform 1 and isoform 2 are expressed in testis. Elevated expression levels were seen only in a subset of cancer cells such as HepG2, HuH7 and HeLa cells. Expression is maximum at M phase.
    • Involvement in diseaseDefects in AURKC are the cause of male infertility with large-headed multiflagellar polyploid spermatozoa (MIMPS) [MIM:243060]; also known as infertility associated with multi-tailed spermatozoa and excessive DNA.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Ser/Thr protein kinase family. Aurora subfamily.
      Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
    • Cellular localizationChromosome. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > spindle. Distributes in the condensed chromosomes during prophase to metaphase. After entering anaphase, there is a dissociation from separated chromosomes and a redistribution to midzone microtubules, and finally remaines in the midbody during cytokinesis.

    Anti-IPL-1/STK13/Aurora C antibody images

    • IHC image of IPL-1/STK13/Aurora C staining in Human normal testis formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica Bond™ system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab38299, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.


      For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.

    • Immunofluorescence assay using HeLa cells expressing GFP-Aurora C was performed at different cellular mitotic stages, using ab38299 as primary antibody (A), GFP fluorescence (B), DAPI nuclear staining (C), and ab38299 merged to DAPI staining (column D).
