  • Function
    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. The complex with RAN plays a role in mitotic spindle formation by serving as a physical scaffold to help deliver the RAN effector molecule TPX2 to microtubules. May play a role in neoplasia. May counteract a default induction of apoptosis in G2/M phase. Inhibitor of caspase-3 and caspase-7. Isoform 2 and isoform 3 do not appear to play vital roles in mitosis. Isoform 3 shows a marked reduction in its anti-apoptotic effects when compared with the displayed wild-type isoform.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed only in fetal kidney and liver, and to lesser extent, lung and brain. Abundantly expressed in adenocarcinoma (lung, pancreas, colon, breast, and prostate) and in high-grade lymphomas. Also expressed in various renal cell carcinoma cell lines.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the IAP family.
    Contains 1 BIR repeat.
  • Developmental stage
    Expression is cell cycle-dependent and peaks at mitosis.
  • Domain
    The BIR repeat is necessary and sufficient for HBXIP binding.
  • Post-translational
    Ubiquitination is required for centrosomal targeting.
    In vitro phosphorylation at Thr-117 by AURKB/STK12 prevents interaction with INCENP and localization to mitotic chromosomes.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm. 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. Colocalizes with AURKB at mitotic chromosomes.

Customer reviews and Q&As

Thank you for the update. The phospho-survivin antibody is likely cross-reacting with another phosphoprotein. I am not sure what to suggest to get rid of the background, and in any case, I think even the staining of what appear to be vessels is a littl...

Thank you for the photo. Can you please tell me what the tissue is, and the species?

For your immunostain, did you include a negative control of just secondary antibody, no survivin antibody, to confirm that the survivin antibody is the sour...

I am sorry to read that these three antibodies are giving you trouble.

We do not have western data for the survivin antibody and so do not have a tested protocol but hopefully I can make some suggestions. Under the terms of our guarantee, th...
