Gene Information

human ... AURKA(6790)

General description

AURA/AURKA (aurora kinase A) is mapped to human chromosome 20q13.2. It is also termed as STK15 (serine/threonine kinase 15). This gene codes for a protein of 403 amino acids with regulatory and catalytic domains. AURA is overexpressed in several malignancies like invasive carcinomas of ovary, head, neck and breast.
Human Aurora kinase A (GenBank Accession No. NM_003600), amino acids 2- 403 with N-terminal HIS6-tag, MW=50 kDa, expressed in a Baculovirus infected Sf9 cell expression system.


Useful for the study of enzyme kinetics, screening inhibitors, and selectivity profiling.

Biochem/physiol Actions

AURA/AURKA (aurora kinase A) modulates cell cycle checkpoints and plays important roles in centrosome division, cytoskeleton and cytokinesis. It sustains the integrity of chromosomes after DNA damage. The catalytic domain of AURKA possesses a serine/threonine kinase activity.

Unit Definition

One unit is defined as the amount of enzyme that will phosphorylate 1 pmol of Ser/Thr 1 peptide substarte per minute at pH 7.4 and 30°C.

The Aurora (Ipl1)-related kinases are universal regulators of mitosis. We now show that Aurora-A, in addition to Aurora-B, regulates kinetochore function in human cells. A two-hybrid screen identified the kinetochore component CENP-A as a protein that interacts with Aurora-A. Aurora-A...

Aurora-A/BTAK/STK15 localizes to the centrosome in the G(2)-M phase, and its kinase activity regulates the G(2) to M transition of the cell cycle. Previous studies have shown that the BRCA1 breast cancer tumor suppressor also localizes to the centrosome and...

Cancer chemotherapy targeting frequent loss of heterozygosity events is an attractive concept, since tumor cells may lack enzymatic activities present in normal constitutional cells. To find exploitable targets, we map prevalent genetic polymorphisms to protein structures and identify 45 nsSNVs (non-synonymous...
