Customer inquiry about Anti-Aurora A antibody for Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Only 67.2% identity between human and C. reinhardtii sequences. Would like a search for Aurora A antibodies with immunogen that is in a region of increased identity.

Thank you for contacting Abcam.
We discussed potential anti-Aurora A antibodies to detect Chlamydomonas reinhardtii Aurora A. Since C. reinhardtii Aurora A has 67.2% homology with human Aurora A, this does not qualify for our AbTrial program, but a positive or negative Abreview can be submitted explaining your experience to give you AbPoints which can be used for an amount off of a future purchase or Amazon gift cards.
I searched through our anti-Aurora A antibodies, and ab115883 is likely your best option should you choose to proceed
The immunogen for this antibody is from amino acids 268-277, which has a fair amount of alignment between human and C. reinhardtii Aurora A.
