|Availability||Will be delivered in 2 to 3 Business Days|
|Characteristics||Blocking peptide for Aurora-A (C-term) antibody ABIN390983|
|Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7002c was selected from the C-term region of human Aurora-A. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
Background: Chromosomal segregation during mitosis as well as meiosis is regulated by kinases and phosphatases. The Aurora kinases, members of the Ser/Thr protein kinase family, associate with microtubules during chromosome movement and segregation. Auroria kinase A may play a role in cell cycle regulation during anaphase and/or telophase, in relation to the function of the centrosome/spindle pole region during chromosome segregation. It may be involved in microtubule formation and/or stabilization. This protein has also been postulated to play a key role during tumor development and progression. Aurora kinase A localizes on centrosomes in interphase cells and at each spindle pole in mitosis. It is highly expressed in testis, weakly in skeletal muscle, thymus and spleen, and also highly expressed in colon, ovarian, prostate, neuroblastoma, breast and cervical cancer cell lines. Expression is cell-cycle regulated, low in G1/S, accumulates during G2/M, and decreases rapidly afterward. Defects in Aurora kinase A are responsible for numerical centrosome aberrations including aneuploidy.
