The aurora kinases in cell cycle and leukemia.
Chicago, United States. In Oncogene, Mar 2015
The Aurora kinases, which include Aurora A (AURKA), Aurora B (AURKB) and Aurora C (AURKC), are serine/threonine kinases required for the control of mitosis (AURKA and AURKB) and meiosis (AURKC).
The dynamic protein Knl1 - a kinetochore rendezvous.
Québec, Canada. In J Cell Sci, Sep 2014
We present emerging roles of the protein interaction motifs present in Knl1, including the RVSF, SILK, MELT and KI motifs, and their role in the recruitment and regulation of the SAC proteins Bub1, BubR1, Bub3 and Aurora B. Finally, we explore how the regions of low structural complexity that characterize Knl1 are implicated in the cooperative interactions that mediate binding partner recognition and scaffolding activity by Knl1.
An up-date on newly discovered immunohistochemical biomarkers for the diagnosis of human testicular germ cell tumors.
Caserta, Italy. In Histol Histopathol, Aug 2014
For proper diagnosis of the different histological subgroups, immunohistochemistry is required using different molecular markers, such as Aurora B, GPR30, Nek2, HMGA1, HMGA2, and others, and they could represent useful novel molecular targets for antineoplastic strategies.
Feedback control of chromosome separation by a midzone Aurora B gradient.
Porto, Portugal. In Science, Aug 2014
A midzone-associated Aurora B gradient was found to monitor chromosome position along the division axis and to prevent premature chromosome decondensation by retaining Condensin I. PP1/PP2A phosphatases counteracted this gradient and promoted chromosome decondensation and NER.
