The AURKC polyclonal antibody (Cat # PAB4512) is used in Western blot to detect AURKC in lysates of 293 cells expressing Flag tag (lane 1) , Flag-tagged AURKA (lane 2) , Flag-tagged AURKB (lane 3) , and Flag-tagged AURKC (lane 4) . Data is kindly provided by Drs . K . Sasai and S . Sen from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston, TX) .
This gene encodes a member of the Aurora subfamily of serine/threonine protein kinases. The encoded protein is a chromosomal passenger protein that forms complexes with Aurora-B and inner centromere proteins and may play a role in organizing microtubules in relation to centrosome/spindle function during mitosis. This gene is overexpressed in several cancer cell lines, suggesting an involvement in oncogenic signal transduction. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq
