Target

  • Function
    May 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 specificity
    High 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 disease
    Note=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 similarities
    Belongs 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 localization
    Nucleus. 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.

    Exposure time: 3 minutes
  • 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

Answer

Thank you for contacting us for technical support with ab3609. I'm sorry to hear you are experiencing problems with this antibody. I would expect it to work in HeLa lysate as we have tested the antibody in this lysate and got a nice band. I think the problem could be due to the following: -non reducing conditions. These have not been tried and may not be suitable for this antibody, therefore try reducing conditions - blocking: sometimes the milk prevents the antibody from binding. I would recommend to block in 1% BSA -not enough antibody: try to incubate overnight at 4C in TBST A few more tips to improve signals are to use an Ecl+ or Pierce Super Signal detection kit rather than Ecl;please also make sure that you have plenty of fresh protease inhibitors; check that your secondary works with other primary antibodies. If you still experience problems with reducing conditions, a changed in blocking and an overnight incubation please do not hesitate to contact me and I can offer you a replacement vial or refund as you purchased the antibody in September. Best of luck with your next experiments,
