AURKA(Aurora kinase A), also named as STK6, STK15 or AIK, belongs to the Ser/Thr protein kinase family. This protein may play a role in cell cycle regulation during anaphase and/or telophase by being involved in microtubule formation and/or stabilization. Some recent evidence revealed that AURKA may also be implicated in tumor development and progression. AURKA is expressed highly in testis and various proliferating cells, migrating as a 46 kDa protein in SDS PAGE.Nuclear staining for AURKA is weak or nonexistent in normal tissue but strong in tumor tissue(PMID:19107951).
