AURKA (Aurora A) is a serine/threonine kinase that regulates mitosis by association in vivo with centrosomes. Overexpression of AURKA is observed in many types of cancer. Aurora A plays 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. Aurora A plays a key role during tumor development and progression and is overexpressed in many human cancers including breast, ovarian and colorectal. Aurora A is viewed as a potential target for anticancer drug treatment. Tissue specificity: Highly expressed in testis and weakly in skeletal muscle, thymus and spleen.
