Incenp and an aurora-like kinase form a complex essential for chromosome segregation and efficient completion of cytokinesis. (1/287)BACKGROUND: In animal cells, cytokinesis begins shortly after the sister chromatids move to the spindle poles. The inner centromere protein (Incenp)has been implicated in both chromosome segregation and cytokinesis, but it is not known exactly how it mediates these two distinct processes. RESULTS: We identified two Caenorhabditis elegans proteins, ICP-1 and ICP-2, with significant homology in their carboxyl termini to the corresponding region of vertebrate Incenp. Embryos depleted of ICP-1 by RNA-mediated interference had defects in both chromosome segregation and cytokinesis. Depletion of the Aurora-like kinase AIR-2 resulted in a similar phenotype. The carboxy-terminal region of Incenp is also homologous to that in Sli15p, a budding yeast protein that functions with the yeast Aurora kinase Ipl1p. ICP-1 bound C. elegans AIR-2 in vitro, and the corresponding mammalian orthologs Incenp and AIRK2 could be co-immunoprecipitated from cell extracts. A significant fraction of embryos depleted of ICP-1 and AIR-2 completed one cell division over the course of several cell cycles. ICP-1 promoted the stable localization of ZEN-4 (also known as CeMKLP1), a kinesin-like protein required for central spindle assembly. CONCLUSIONS: ICP-1 and AIR-2 are part of a complex that is essential for chromosome segregation and for efficient completion of cytokinesis. We propose that this complex acts by promoting dissolution of sister chromatid cohesion and the assembly of the central spindle. (+info)
Alternative splicing in 5'-untranslational region of STK-15 gene, encoding centrosome associated kinase, in breast cancer cell lines. (2/287)Centrosomes maintain genomic stability by establishing the bipolar spindles during cell division and, execute accurate segregation of chromosomes during mitosis. In this study, we have demonstrated that there are three forms of STK-15 gene in breast cancer cell lines. Alternative splice positions are located in 5'-untranslated region of STK15 gene. The results of in vitro translation experiments revealed that the alternative splicing in the 5'-untranslated region of STK15 had no effect on protein translation. The differential expression patterns of these alternatively spliced STK15 in breast cell lines and primary tumors therefore suggest that STK15 gene transcription may be differentially regulated or stabilized in these cells.

Tumour-amplified kinase BTAK is amplified and overexpressed in gastric cancers with possible involvement in aneuploid formation. (3/287)Our recent analysis of gastric cancers using comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) revealed a novel high frequent copy number increase in the long arm of chromosome 20. Tumour-amplified kinase BTAK was recently cloned from breast cancers and mapped on 20q13 as a target gene for this amplification in human breast cancers. In the study presented here, we analysed BTAK copy-number and expression, and their relation to the ploidy pattern in 72 primary gastric cancers. Furthermore, wild-type BTAK and its deletion mutants were transfected to gastric cancers to examine changes in cell proliferation and DNA ploidy pattern. Evaluation of 72 unselected primary gastric cancers found BTAK amplification in 5% and overexpression in more than 50%. All four clinical samples with BTAK amplification showed aneuploidy and poor prognosis. Transfection of BTAK in near-diploid gastric cancers induced another aneuploid cell population. In contrast, the c-terminal-deleted mutant of BTAK induced no effect in DNA ploidy pattern and inhibited gastric cancer cell proliferation. These results suggest that BTAK may be involved in gastric cancer cell aneuploid formation, and is a candidate gene for the increase in the number of copies of the 20q, and thus may contribute to an increase in the malignant phenotype of gastric cancer.

Downregulation of an AIM-1 kinase couples with megakaryocytic polyploidization of human hematopoietic cells. (4/287)During the late phase of megakaryopoiesis, megakaryocytes undergo polyploidization, which is characterized by DNA duplication without concomitant cell division. However, it remains unknown by which mechanisms this process occurs. AIM-1 and STK15 belong to the Aurora/increase-in-ploidy (Ipl)1 serine/threonine kinase family and play key roles in mitosis. In a human interleukin-3-dependent cell line, F-36P, the expressions of AIM-1 and STK15 mRNA were specifically observed at G2/M phase of the cell cycle during proliferation. In contrast, the expressions of AIM-1 and STK15 were continuously repressed during megakaryocytic polyploidization of human erythro/megakaryocytic cell lines (F-36P, K562, and CMK) treated with thrombopoietin, activated ras (H-ras(G12V)), or phorbol ester. Furthermore, their expressions were suppressed during thrombopoietin-induced polyploidization of normal human megakaryocytes. Activation of AIM-1 by the induced expression of AIM-1(wild-type) canceled TPA-induced polyploidization of K562 cells significantly, whereas that of STK15 did not. Moreover, suppression of AIM-1 by the induced expression of AIM-1 (K/R, dominant-negative type) led to polyploidization in 25% of K562 cells, whereas STK15(K/R) showed no effect. Also, the induced expression of AIM-1(K/R) in CMK cells provoked polyploidization up to 32N. These results suggested that downregulation of AIM-1 at M phase may be involved in abortive mitosis and polyploid formation of megakaryocytes. (+info)
Interaction and feedback regulation between STK15/BTAK/Aurora-A kinase and protein phosphatase 1 through mitotic cell division cycle. (5/287)STK15 is an Aurora/Ipl-1 related serine/threonine kinase that is associated with centrosomes and induces aneuploidy when overexpressed in mammalian cells. It is well known that phosphorylation and dephosphorylation of kinases are important for regulation of their activity. But mechanisms by which STK15 activity is regulated have not been elucidated. We report that STK15 contains two functional binding sites for protein phosphatase type 1 (PP1), and the binding of these proteins is cell cycle-regulated peaking at mitosis. Activated STK15 at mitosis phosphorylates PP1 and inhibits PP1 activity in vitro. In vivo, PP1 activity co-immunoprecipitated with STK15 is also reduced. These data indicate that STK15 inhibits PP1 activity during mitosis. Also, PP1 is shown to dephosphorylate active STK15 and abolish its activity in vitro. Furthermore, we show that non-binding mutants of STK15 for PP1 are superphosphorylated, but their kinase activities are markedly reduced. Cells transfected with these non-binding mutants manifest aberrant chromosome alignment during mitosis. Our results suggest that a feedback regulation through phosphorylation/dephosphorylation events between STK15 kinase and PP1 phosphatase operates through the cell cycle. Deregulation of this balance may contribute to anomalous segregation of chromosomes during mitotic progression of cancer cells. (+info)
Aurora-A kinase is required for centrosome maturation in Caenorhabditis elegans. (6/287)Centrosomes mature as cells enter mitosis, accumulating gamma-tubulin and other pericentriolar material (PCM) components. This occurs concomitant with an increase in the number of centrosomally organized microtubules (MTs). Here, we use RNA-mediated interference (RNAi) to examine the role of the aurora-A kinase, AIR-1, during centrosome maturation in Caenorhabditis elegans. In air-1(RNAi) embryos, centrosomes separate normally, an event that occurs before maturation in C. elegans. After nuclear envelope breakdown, the separated centrosomes collapse together, and spindle assembly fails. In mitotic air-1(RNAi) embryos, centrosomal alpha-tubulin fluorescence intensity accumulates to only 40% of wild-type levels, suggesting a defect in the maturation process. Consistent with this hypothesis, we find that AIR-1 is required for the increase in centrosomal gamma-tubulin and two other PCM components, ZYG-9 and CeGrip, as embryos enter mitosis. Furthermore, the AIR-1-dependent increase in centrosomal gamma-tubulin does not require MTs. These results suggest that aurora-A kinases are required to execute a MT-independent pathway for the recruitment of PCM during centrosome maturation. (+info)
Mitotic phosphorylation of histone H3: spatio-temporal regulation by mammalian Aurora kinases. (7/287)Phosphorylation at a highly conserved serine residue (Ser-10) in the histone H3 tail is considered to be a crucial event for the onset of mitosis. This modification appears early in the G(2) phase within pericentromeric heterochromatin and spreads in an ordered fashion coincident with mitotic chromosome condensation. Mutation of Ser-10 is essential in Tetrahymena, since it results in abnormal chromosome segregation and extensive chromosome loss during mitosis and meiosis, establishing a strong link between signaling and chromosome dynamics. Although mitotic H3 phosphorylation has been long recognized, the transduction routes and the identity of the protein kinases involved have been elusive. Here we show that the expression of Aurora-A and Aurora-B, two kinases of the Aurora/AIK family, is tightly coordinated with H3 phosphorylation during the G(2)/M transition. During the G(2) phase, the Aurora-A kinase is coexpressed while the Aurora-B kinase colocalizes with phosphorylated histone H3. At prophase and metaphase, Aurora-A is highly localized in the centrosomic region and in the spindle poles while Aurora-B is present in the centromeric region concurrent with H3 phosphorylation, to then translocate by cytokinesis to the midbody region. Both Aurora-A and Aurora-B proteins physically interact with the H3 tail and efficiently phosphorylate Ser10 both in vitro and in vivo, even if Aurora-A appears to be a better H3 kinase than Aurora-B. Since Aurora-A and Aurora-B are known to be overexpressed in a variety of human cancers, our findings provide an attractive link between cell transformation, chromatin modifications and a specific kinase system.

Cell-cycle-dependent regulation of human aurora A transcription is mediated by periodic repression of E4TF1. (8/287)Human aurora A is a serine-threonine kinase that controls various mitotic events. The transcription of aurora A mRNA varies throughout the cell cycle and peaks during G(2)/M. To clarify the transcriptional mechanism, we first cloned the 1.8-kb 5'-flanking region of aurora A including the first exon. Transient expression of aurora A promoter-luciferase constructs containing a series of 5'-truncated sequences or site-directed mutations identified a 7-bp sequence (CTTCCGG) from -85 to -79 as a positive regulatory element. Electromobility shift assays identified the binding of positive regulatory proteins to the CTTCCGG element. Anti-E4TF1-60 antibody generated a supershifted complex. Furthermore, coexpression of E4TF1-60 and E4TF1-53 markedly increased aurora A promoter activity. Synchronized cells transfected with the aurora A promoter-luciferase constructs revealed that the promoter activity of aurora A increased in the S phase and peaked at G(2)/M. In addition, we identified a tandem repressor element, CDE/CHR, just downstream of the CTTCCGG element, and mutation within this element led to a loss of cell cycle regulation. We conclude that the transcription of aurora A is positively regulated by E4TF1, a ubiquitously expressed ETS family protein, and that the CDE/CHR element was essential for the G(2)/M-specific transcription of aurora A.

In this report, we have shown that Aurora-A, a centrosome-associated oncogenic protein, is overexpressed in human ESCC. Using an immunochemical staining approach, we found about 69% (45 of 64 samples) of ESCC tumor tissues to strongly overexpress Aurora-A protein. In contrast, ,2% (1 of 61 samples) of normal adjacent tissues displayed high expression of Aurora-A (Fig. 1⇓ ; Table 1⇓ ). These findings were further confirmed by Western blot analysis (Fig. 2)⇓ . Interestingly, overexpression of Aurora-A was shown to associate with the grades of tumor differentiation and invasive capability. Additionally, we have also examined Aurora-A expression and cell migration in 12 human ESCC lines and found that levels of Aurora-A protein were correlated to the migrating potentials of tumor cells. Moreover, disruption of endogenous Aurora-A protein through siRNA knockdown technique was shown to substantially suppress cell migration (Fig. 4)⇓ , suggesting an association of Aurora-A with tumor cell ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Activation of Aurora-A Kinase by Protein Partner Binding and Phosphorylation Are Independent and Synergistic. AU - Dodson, Charlotte. AU - Bayliss, Richard. PY - 2012/1/6. Y1 - 2012/1/6. N2 - Protein kinases are activated by phosphorylation and by the binding of activator proteins. The interplay of these two factors is incompletely understood. We applied energetic analysis to this question and characterized the activation process of the serine/threonine kinase Aurora-A by phosphorylation and by its protein partner, targeting protein for Xenopus kinesin-like protein 2 (TPX2). We discovered that these two activators act synergistically and without a predefined order: each can individually increase the activity of Aurora-A, and the effect of both bound together is the exact sum of their individual contributions to catalysis. Unexpectedly, the unphosphorylated enzyme has catalytic activity that is increased 15-fold by the binding of TPX2 alone. The energetic contribution of ...
Aurora kinase A inhibition with alisertib monotherapy may benefit a subset of patients with neuroendocrine prostate cancer (NEPC).
Background: Aurora kinases are promising targets for cancer chemotherapy. Many reports have been published that some cancers overexpress Aurora kinases, which correlates with tumor grade and poor prognosis. Hence Aurora kinases were considered key genes for cancerogenesis and progression. Many Aurora kinase inhibitors(AKI,s) are in various phases of pre-clinical and clinical development and promising anticancer effects have been reported. Tumor resistance remains one of the major problems in chemotherapy.. Objectives: Our work is mainly aimed at identification of potential resistance mechanisms towards CYC116 (new small molecule pan Aurora kinase inhibitor) and ZM447439. The main aims include generation and selection of resistant tumor cell clones, characterization of resistance, cross resistance with other AKI,s and multidrug resistance. Further characterization of the resistant clones included cell cycle analysis, expression and DNA sequencing of Aurora kinases, cellular target inhibition, and ...

OUTLINE: This is an open-label, dose-escalation, multicenter study.. Patients receive Aurora kinase inhibitor AT9283 (AT9283) IV over 24 hours on days 1 and 8 . Treatment repeats every 3 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.. Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of AT9283 until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose at which at least 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity. The dose preceding the MTD is the recommended phase II dose (RPTD). Up to 8 additional patients are treated at the RPTD.. Patients treated at the RPTD undergo skin and tumor tissue biopsy and blood collection at baseline and on days 2 and/or 3. Samples are examined by pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic analysis, including immunohistochemistry, immunocytochemistry, western blotting, immunoenzyme techniques, flow cytometry, and reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction, for biological markers..

Multiple proof-of-principle experiments suggest that targeting members of the Myc family of oncoproteins will have significant therapeutic benefit in human tumors. Deregulated expression of MYCN, one of the three family members implicated in human tumors, is prevalent in both pediatric and adult neuroendocrine tumors. We have shown previously that MYCN-amplified neuroblastoma cells depend on high levels of Aurora-A expression for maintaining N-Myc function. Similarly, Aurora-A and N-Myc bind each other and together drive an oncogenic gene expression program in neuroendocrine prostate tumors. Although stabilization of N-Myc does not require the catalytic activity of Aurora-A, we found that two inhibitors of Aurora-A disrupt the Aurora-A/N-Myc complex and promote degradation of N-Myc via the Fbxw7 ubiquitin ligase. Disruption of the Aurora-A/N-Myc complex inhibits N-Myc-dependent transcription, correlating with tumor regression and prolonged survival in a mouse model of MYCN-driven neuroblastoma, ...

Although the MAPK pathway is frequently deregulated in cancer, inhibitors targeting RAF or MEK have so far shown clinical activity only in BRAF- and NRAS-mutant melanoma. Improvements in efficacy may be possible by combining inhibition of mitogenic signal transduction with inhibition of cell-cycle progression. We have studied the preclinical pharmacology of BI 847325, an ATP-competitive dual inhibitor of MEK and Aurora kinases. Potent inhibition of MEK1/2 and Aurora A/B kinases by BI 847325 was demonstrated in enzymatic and cellular assays. Equipotent effects were observed in BRAF-mutant cells, whereas in KRAS-mutant cells, MEK inhibition required higher concentrations than Aurora kinase inhibition. Daily oral administration of BI 847325 at 10 mg/kg showed efficacy in both BRAF- and KRAS-mutant xenograft models. Biomarker analysis suggested that this effect was primarily due to inhibition of MEK in BRAF-mutant models but of Aurora kinase in KRAS-mutant models. Inhibition of both MEK and Aurora ...

Senescence-inducing therapies can block proliferation of malignant cells and promote anti-tumor immune activity. However, the risk of tumor relapse remains high due to the long lifespan of senescence cells with potential to escape senescence. Here our preclinical studies demonstrate that combining a senescent-inducing aurora kinase A (AURKA) inhibitor alisertib (MLN8237) with an MDM2 antagonist [(-)-nutlin 3a] effectively induces robust p53 activation in senescent Tp53WT tumors accompanied by: 1) tumor cell proliferation arrest; 2) mitochondrial depolarization and tumor cell apoptosis; and 3) tumor cell clearance via CCL5-, CCL1- and CCL9-mediated recruitment of anti-tumor leukocytes. This combined therapy shows adequate bioavailability and low toxicity to the host in the mouse model. Moreover, the prominent preclinical response of patient-derived melanoma tumors to the co-targeting of MDM2 and AURKA provides rationale for further investigation of alisertib and MDM2 inhibitors..

Recently, Aurora kinases (A, B, and C/serine threonine kinases) gained much attention due to their implication in several types of cancers. Aurora kinases are involved in multiple functions in mitosis. Aurora A is involved in mitotic entry, separation of centriole pairs, accurate bipolar spindle assembly, alignment of metaphase chromosomes and completion of cytokinesis. Aurora B is a chromosomal passenger protein involved in the regulation of chromosomal orientation, and regulating the association between kinetochores and microtubules, and cytokinesis. Aurora C exhibits similar functions to those assigned to Aurora B and is required for cytokinesis. The above mentioned functions are directly involved in maintaining genomic stability. The relation between Aurora kinases overexpression and transformation has been reported in many cancers. Aurora A was shown to overexpress in colorectal, renal, melanoma, and breast cancers. Mainly Aurora B was shown to overexpress in colorectal cancer. Aurora B was ...
PURPOSE: Despite over 70,000 new cases of bladder cancer in the United States annually, patients with advanced disease have a poor prognosis due to limited treatment modalities. We evaluate the role of Aurora A, identified as an upregulated candidate molecule in bladder cancer, in regulating bladder tumor growth. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Gene expression in human bladder cancer samples was evaluated using RNA microarray and reverse-transcriptase PCR. The specific Aurora kinase A inhibitor MLN8237 (Millennium) was used to determine effects on bladder cancer cell growth using in vitro and in vivo models using malignant T24 and UM-UC-3 and papilloma-derived RT4 bladder cells. RESULTS: Urothelial carcinoma upregulates a set of 13 mitotic spindle associated transcripts, as compared to normal urothelium, including MAD2L1 (7.6-fold), BUB1B (8.8-fold), Aurora kinases A (5.6-fold) and Aurora kinase B (6.2-fold). Application of MLN8237 (10nM-1µM) to the human bladder tumor cell lines T24 and UM-UC-3 induced dose
Aurora B kinase is a protein that functions in the attachment of the mitotic spindle to the centromere. Chromosomal segregation during mitosis as well as meiosis is regulated by kinases and phosphatases. The Aurora kinases associate with microtubules during chromosome movement and segregation. Aurora kinase B localizes to microtubules near kinetochores, specifically to the specialized microtubules called K-fibers, and Aurora kinase A (MIM 603072) localizes to centrosomes (Lampson et al., 2004).[supplied by OMIM] In cancerous cells, over-expression of these enzymes causes unequal distribution of genetic information, creating aneuploid cells, a hallmark of cancer. In 1998, Aurora kinase B was identified in humans by a polymerase chain reaction screen for kinases that are overexpressed in cancers. In the same year, rat Aurora kinase B was identified in a screen designed to find kinases that altered S. cerevisiae proliferation when overexpressed. The expression and activity of Aurora B are regulated ...
Whether aurora A or aurora B is the better anticancer drug target is a matter of debate (8). At least two groups have directly addressed this question in the laboratory. Warner et al. (36) compared the effects of aurora A and aurora B antisense oligonucleotides in pancreatic cancer cells and found that aurora A-targeted therapy may be preferable to aurora B targeting, as shown by mitotic arrest and the rapid induction of apoptosis. Girdler et al. (37) compared the effects of RNA interference and small molecules targeting aurora A versus aurora B in colon cancer cells and found that the cells tested were extremely sensitive to aurora B inhibition. Interestingly, dual inhibition of aurora A and B results in phenotypes identical to inactivation of aurora B alone (28). Using RNA interference experiments, Yang et al. (38) showed that inactivation of aurora B indeed bypasses the requirement for aurora A and leads to polyploidy, indicating that aurora B is responsible for mitotic arrest in the absence ...
SAR156497 is an exquisitely selective Aurora A, B, and C inhibitor with in vitro and in vivo efficacy with IC50 = 0.5 nM (Aurora A); 1 nM (Aurora B / incenp); 3 nM (Aurora C / incenp) respectively SAR156497 combines high in vitro potency with satisfactory metabolic stability and limited CYP 3A4 and PDE3 inhibition. In vitro, SAR156497 displayed high antiproliferative activity on a large panel of tumor cell lines without correlation with any particular genetic signature or Aurora kinases expression. It induced significant modulation of Aurora A and Aurora B biomarkers (p-Aurora A and pHH3, respectively) and cell polyploidy, as expected from Aurora A/B inhibitors. In vivo efficacy has been demonstrated on relevant tumor models, but unfortunately, SAR156497 displayed a narrow therapeutic window.
Background: It is known that aurora B, a chromosomal passenger protein responsible for the proper progression of mitosis and cytokinesis, is overexpressed throughout the cell cycle in cancer cells. Overexpression of aurora B produced multinuclearity and induced aggressive metastasis, suggesting that overexpressed aurora B has multiple functions in cancer development. However, the detailed dynamics and functions of overexpressed aurora B are poorly understood. Results: We overexpressed GFP fused aurora B kinase in normal rat kidney epithelial cells. Using spinning disk confocal microscopy, we found that overexpressed aurora B-GFP was predominantly localized in the nucleus and along the cortex as a dot-like or short filamentous structure during interphase. Time-lapse imaging revealed that a cytoplasmic fraction of overexpressed aurora B-GFP was incorporated into the nucleus after cell division. Immunofluorescence showed that the nuclear fraction of overexpressed aurora B did not induce ectopic ...
Udayakumar T.S., Belakavadi M., Choi K.-H., Pandey P.K., Fondell J.D.. The TRAP/Mediator coactivator complex serves as a functional interface between DNA-bound transactivators and the RNA polymerase II-associated basal transcription apparatus. TRAP220/MED1 is a variably associated subunit of the complex that plays a specialized role in selectively targeting TRAP/Mediator to specific genes. Ablation of the Trap220/Med1 gene in mice impairs embryonic cell growth, yet the underlying mechanism is unknown. In this report, we identified distinct cell growth regulatory genes whose expression is affected by the loss of TRAP220/MED1 by RNA interference. Among the down-regulated genes revealed by cDNA microarray analyses, we identified Aurora-A, a centrosome kinase that plays a critical role in regulating M phase events and is frequently amplified in several types of cancer. In general, we found that TRAP220/MED1 expression is required for high basal levels of Aurora-A gene expression and that ectopic ...

Once the dose levels reached 190 mg/m2, tests on skin biopsies showed that the drug was inhibiting the aurora B protein - in other words it was beginning to do what we expected it to.. "The aurora B protein is responsible for phosphorylating histone H3 - a protein involved in the structure of chromatin (the strands of DNA that make up chromosomes) in cells. Inhibition of aurora B results in the inhibition of phosphorylation of histone H3, thereby blocking that step in cell division. This study shows, for the first time, that the aurora kinase inhibitor PHA-739358 inhibits phosphorylation of histone H3 in the skin of patients, and therewith provides a proof for its (or one of its) mechanisms of action.". The researchers are continuing to recruit patients in order to define the safety of the drug and the recommended dose for subsequent studies. However, they believe the results so far are promising.. "The clinical trial has proved the concept that inhibition of the aurora protein disrupts an ...

Shit! Bring the…help me!". The words floated down to her from the ceiling of the night. As she was carried on, Cassandra thought that she should be more concerned about what she was managing to hear. It certainly didnt sound good, but…well, she just couldnt bring herself to care. She knew Aurora would patch her up, so why be worried? She wouldnt die here; she had too much she was looking forward to, and certainly had too much left to do. She refused to believe that childbirth would kill her when her foes had failed. As ironic as that death would be, it wouldnt be hers. It just didnt fit. She wished she could tell the doctor that, but her mouth wasnt working and Aurora wasnt a telepath. So that was a lost cause..

Aurora A (serine/threonine kinase 6) is overexpressed in many pre-invasive and invasive breast carcinomas. High expression of Aurora A is strongly associated with decreased survival in patients with breast cancer, but the molecular mechanisms that underlie Aurora-A-associated malignancy are poorly understood. Here, Kavita Shah and co-workers (p. 2711) use a new chemical genetic approach to identify the pleckstrin-homology-like domain protein PHLDA1 as a putative Aurora A target. The authors confirm previous reports that PHLDA1 is frequently downregulated in primary breast cancers and, in addition, show that PHLDA1 downregulation is associated with oestrogen receptor expression in breast carcinoma. Aurora A directly phosphorylates PHLDA1, which leads to its degradation, but PHLDA1 also negatively regulates Aurora A, thereby setting up a feedback loop. Finally, they show that PHLDA1 upregulation and Aurora A inhibition act synergistically to promote cell death, and that PHLDA1 strongly inhibits ...
The Aurora family of serine-threonine kinases are essential regulators of cell division in mammalian cells. Aurora-A and -B expression and kinase activity is elevated in a variety of human cancers and is associated with high proliferation rates and poor prognosis. AMG 900 is a highly potent and selective pan-aurora kinase inhibitor that has entered clinical evaluation in adult patients with advanced cancers. In mice, oral administration of AMG 900 blocks the phosphorylation of histone H3 on serine-10 (p-Histone H3), a proximal substrate of aurora-B and inhibits the growth of multiple human tumor xenografts, including multidrug-resistant models. In order to establish a preclinical pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic (PK-PD) relationship for AMG 900 that could be translated to the clinic, we used flow cytometry and laser scanning cytometry detection platforms to assess the effects on p-Histone H3 inhibition in terms of sensitivity, precision, and specificity, in human tumor xenografts in conjunction with
We present an analysis of flickering (2-10 Hz) auroras observed with a state-of-the-art multispectral imaging system, Auroral Structure and Kinetics, located in Tromso, Norway. Short (1-2 s) periods of flickering aurora have been identified in which the frequency of the brightness oscillations decreases or increases smoothly over time. To the authors knowledge this is the first detailed analysis of such "chirps" in flickering aurora or field-aligned bursts. We have found that the electron precipitation energy is strongly anticorrelated with the flickering frequency during all identified chirps. This result is consistent with the theory that flickering aurora is caused by the resonance interaction between electromagnetic ion cyclotron waves and precipitating electrons and that the wave parallel phase velocity is the primary factor determining the electron acceleration produced by this mechanism. Other current theories known to the authors cannot completely explain our observations.. ...
We have characterised the role played by the aurora-related kinase Ark1 in regulating mitotic progression in fission yeast. In contrast to metazoans, where aurora A is required for spindle formation and aurora B required for both chromosome condensation and cytokinesis, a single aurora kinase, Ark1, is required for mitosis in S. pombe. The phenotypes arising in cells that lack Ark1 suggest that this single kinase is performing functions that are related to the functions of each of the two isoforms in higher systems. The spindle formation defects of ark1.Δ1 cells resemble the consequences of perturbing aurora A function in Drosophila and Xenopus (Glover et al., 1995; Roghi et al., 1998), while the lack of chromosome resolution during anaphase resembles aurora B deficiencies in C. elegans and Drosophila (Adams et al., 2001b; Giet and Glover, 2001; Kaitna et al., 2000; Severson et al., 2000b). Although we failed to detect a requirement for Ark1 during cytokinesis, it remains a possibility that, ...
Key cells divide asymmetrically during the development of multicellular organisms to give rise to offspring with different fates. In the Drosophila external sensory organ, asymmetrical division depends on polarization of the precursor cells during interphase and the consequent unequal distribution during mitosis of the protein Numb, which determines cell fate. Gonzalez discusses recent research implicating the mitotic kinase Aurora-A in the asymmetric localization of Numb in sensory organ pI precursor cells, a new function that appears to be independent of Aurora-As known roles in regulating centrosomal maturation and the organization of mitotic spindle microtubules.. ...
