Various upstream activators, which act in response to extracellular stimuli, trigger the cascades by activating the first member of a cascade, MAP KINASE KINASE KINASES; (MAPKKKs). Activated MAPKKKs phosphorylate MITOGEN-ACTIVATED PROTEIN KINASE KINASES which in turn phosphorylate the MITOGEN-ACTIVATED PROTEIN KINASES; (MAPKs). The MAPKs then act on various downstream targets to affect gene expression. In mammals, there are several distinct MAP kinase pathways including the ERK (extracellular signal-regulated kinase) pathway, the SAPK/JNK (stress-activated protein kinase/c-jun kinase) pathway, and the p38 kinase pathway. There is some sharing of components among the pathways depending on which stimulus originates activation of the cascade.Spindle Apparatus: A microtubule structure that forms during CELL DIVISION.

In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases.

This mode of cell death serves as a balance to mitosis in regulating the size of animal tissues and in mediating pathologic processes associated with tumor growth.Protein Kinase C: An serine-threonine protein kinase that requires the presence of physiological concentrations of CALCIUM and membrane PHOSPHOLIPIDS. The additional presence of DIACYLGLYCEROLS markedly increases its sensitivity to both calcium and phospholipids.

They ensure that the cell has completed, in the correct order and without mistakes, all the processes required to replicate the GENOME and CYTOPLASM, and divide them equally between two daughter cells.

Endogenously, siRNAs are generated from dsRNAs (RNA, DOUBLE-STRANDED) by the same ribonuclease, Dicer, that generates miRNAs (MICRORNAS).

Cell cycle-dependent expression and centrosome localization of a third human aurora/Ipl1-related protein kinase, AIK3. (1/454)

We earlier isolated cDNAs encoding novel human protein kinases AIK and AIK2 sharing high amino acid sequence identities with Drosophila Aurora and Saccharomyces cerevisiae Ipl1 kinases whose mutations cause abnormal chromosome segregation. In the present study, a third human cDNA (AIK3) highly homologous to aurora/IPL1 was isolated, and the nucleotide sequence was determined. This cDNA encodes 309 amino acids with a predicted molecular mass of 35.9 kDa. C-terminal kinase domain of AIK3 protein shares high amino acid sequence identities with those of Aurora/Ipl1 family protein kinases including human AIK, human AIK2, Xenopus pEg2, Drosophila Aurora, and yeast Ipl1, whereas the N-terminal domain of AIK3 protein shares little homology with any other Aurora/Ipl1 family members. AIK3 gene was assigned to human chromosome 19q13.43, which is a frequently deleted or rearranged region in several tumor tissues, by fluorescence in situ hybridization, somatic cell hybrid panel, and radiation hybrid cell panel. Northern blot analyses revealed that AIK3 expression was limited to testis. The expression levels of AIK3 in several cancer cell lines were elevated severalfold compared with normal fibroblasts. In HeLa cells, the endogenous AIK3 protein level is low in G1/S, accumulates during G2/M, and reduces after mitosis. Immunofluorescence studies using a specific antibody have shown that AIK3 is localized to centrosome during mitosis from anaphase to cytokinesis. These results suggest that AIK3 may play a role(s) in centrosome function at later stages of mitosis.  (+info)

The survivin-like C. elegans BIR-1 protein acts with the Aurora-like kinase AIR-2 to affect chromosomes and the spindle midzone. (2/454)

Baculoviral IAP repeat proteins (BIRPs) may affect cell death, cell division, and tumorigenesis. The C. elegans BIRP BIR-1 was localized to chromosomes and to the spindle midzone. Embryos and fertilized oocytes lacking BIR-1 had defects in chromosome behavior, spindle midzone formation, and cytokinesis. We observed indistinguishable defects in fertilized oocytes and embryos lacking the Aurora-like kinase AIR-2. AIR-2 was not present on chromosomes in the absence of BIR-1. Histone H3 phosphorylation and HCP-1 staining, which marks kinetochores, were reduced in the absence of either BIR-1 or AIR-2. We propose that BIR-1 localizes AIR-2 to chromosomes and perhaps to the spindle midzone, where AIR-2 phosphorylates proteins that affect chromosome behavior and spindle midzone organization. The human BIRP survivin, which is upregulated in tumors, could partially substitute for BIR-1 in C. elegans. Deregulation of bir-1 promotes changes in ploidy, suggesting that similar deregulation of mammalian BIRPs may contribute to tumorigenesis.  (+info)

The aurora-related kinase AIR-2 recruits ZEN-4/CeMKLP1 to the mitotic spindle at metaphase and is required for cytokinesis. (3/454)

BACKGROUND: The Aurora/Ipl1p-related kinase AIR-2 is required for mitotic chromosome segregation and cytokinesis in early Caenorhabditis elegans embryos. Previous studies have relied on non-conditional mutations or RNA-mediated interference (RNAi) to inactivate AIR-2. It has therefore not been possible to determine whether AIR-2 functions directly in cytokinesis or if the cleavage defect results indirectly from the failure to segregate DNA. One intriguing hypothesis is that AIR-2 acts to localize the mitotic kinesin-like protein ZEN-4 (also known as CeMKLP1), which later functions in cytokinesis. RESULTS: Using conditional alleles, we established that AIR-2 is required at metaphase or early anaphase for normal segregation of chromosomes, localization of ZEN-4, and cytokinesis. ZEN-4 is first required late in cytokinesis, and also functions to maintain cell separation through much of the subsequent interphase. DNA segregation defects alone were not sufficient to disrupt cytokinesis in other mutants, suggesting that AIR-2 acts specifically during cytokinesis through ZEN-4. AIR-2 and ZEN-4 shared similar genetic interactions with the formin homology (FH) protein CYK-1, suggesting that AIR-2 and ZEN-4 function in a single pathway, in parallel to a contractile ring pathway that includes CYK-1. Using in vitro co-immunoprecipitation experiments, we found that AIR-2 and ZEN-4 interact directly. CONCLUSIONS: AIR-2 has two functions during mitosis: one in chromosome segregation, and a second, independent function in cytokinesis through ZEN-4. AIR-2 and ZEN-4 may act in parallel to a second pathway that includes CYK-1.  (+info)

Incenp and an aurora-like kinase form a complex essential for chromosome segregation and efficient completion of cytokinesis. (4/454)

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)

Essential roles of Drosophila inner centromere protein (INCENP) and aurora B in histone H3 phosphorylation, metaphase chromosome alignment, kinetochore disjunction, and chromosome segregation. (5/454)

We have performed a biochemical and double-stranded RNA-mediated interference (RNAi) analysis of the role of two chromosomal passenger proteins, inner centromere protein (INCENP) and aurora B kinase, in cultured cells of Drosophila melanogaster. INCENP and aurora B function is tightly interlinked. The two proteins bind to each other in vitro, and DmINCENP is required for DmAurora B to localize properly in mitosis and function as a histone H3 kinase. DmAurora B is required for DmINCENP accumulation at centromeres and transfer to the spindle at anaphase. RNAi for either protein dramatically inhibited the ability of cells to achieve a normal metaphase chromosome alignment. Cells were not blocked in mitosis, however, and entered an aberrant anaphase characterized by defects in sister kinetochore disjunction and the presence of large amounts of amorphous lagging chromatin. Anaphase A chromosome movement appeared to be normal, however cytokinesis often failed. DmINCENP and DmAurora B are not required for the correct localization of the kinesin-like protein Pavarotti (ZEN-4/CHO1/MKLP1) to the midbody at telophase. These experiments reveal that INCENP is required for aurora B kinase function and confirm that the chromosomal passengers have essential roles in mitosis.  (+info)

INCENP is required for proper targeting of Survivin to the centromeres and the anaphase spindle during mitosis. (6/454)

Three lines of investigation have suggested that interactions between Survivin and the chromosomal passenger proteins INCENP and Aurora-B kinase may be important for mitotic progression. First, interference with the function of Survivin/BIR1, INCENP, or Aurora-B kinase leads to similar defects in mitosis and cytokinesis [1-7] (see [8] for review). Second, INCENP and Aurora-B exist in a complex in Xenopus eggs [9] and in mammalian cultured cells [7]. Third, interference with Survivin or INCENP function causes Aurora-B kinase to be mislocalized in mitosis in both C. elegans and vertebrates [5, 7, 9]. Here, we provide evidence that Survivin, Aurora-B, and INCENP interact physically and functionally. Direct visualization of Survivin-GFP in mitotic cells reveals that it localizes identically to INCENP and Aurora-B. Survivin binds directly to both Aurora-B and INCENP in yeast two-hybrid and in vitro pull-down assays. The in vitro interaction between Survivin and Aurora-B is extraordinarily stable in that it resists 3 M NaCl. Finally, Survivin and INCENP interact functionally in vivo; in cells in which INCENP localization is disrupted, Survivin adheres to the chromosomes and no longer concentrates at the centromeres or transfers to the anaphase spindle midzone. Our data provide the first biochemical evidence that Survivin can interact directly with members of the chromosomal passenger complex.  (+info)

CENP-A is phosphorylated by Aurora B kinase and plays an unexpected role in completion of cytokinesis. (7/454)

Aurora B is a mitotic protein kinase that phosphorylates histone H3, behaves as a chromosomal passenger protein, and functions in cytokinesis. We investigated a role for Aurora B with respect to human centromere protein A (CENP-A), a centromeric histone H3 homologue. Aurora B concentrates at centromeres in early G2, associates with histone H3 and centromeres at the times when histone H3 and CENP-A are phosphorylated, and phosphorylates histone H3 and CENP-A in vitro at a similar target serine residue. Dominant negative phosphorylation site mutants of CENP-A result in a delay at the terminal stage of cytokinesis (cell separation). The only molecular defects detected in analysis of 22 chromosomal, spindle, and regulatory proteins were disruptions in localization of inner centromere protein (INCENP), Aurora B, and a putative partner phosphatase, PP1gamma1. Our data support a model where CENP-A phosphorylation is involved in regulating Aurora B, INCENP, and PP1gamma1 targeting within the cell. These experiments identify an unexpected role for the kinetochore in regulation of cytokinesis.  (+info)

Mitotic phosphorylation of histone H3: spatio-temporal regulation by mammalian Aurora kinases. (8/454)

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.  (+info)

Neutralizing antibodies often identify parts of viral envelope glycoproteins that are likely involved in receptor binding or various other areas of virus entry. pathogen entry. The entrance of individual immunodeficiency pathogen type 1 (HIV-1) in to the web host cell is certainly mediated with the viral envelope glycoproteins. The HIV-1 envelope glycoproteins derive from NVP-AEW541 a approximately 850-residue precursor thats intensely glycosylated and eventually cleaved in to the older gp120 and gp41 subunits (72). The envelope glycoprotein spike on HIV-1 virions features being a homotrimer formulated with three gp120 outdoor envelope glycoproteins and three gp41 transmembrane envelope glycoproteins (14, 72). The HIV-1 gp41 glycoprotein is certainly a sort I membrane proteins, and its own ectodomain interacts noncovalently with gp120 to wthhold the latter in the virion surface area (19, 45). The gp120 glycoprotein comprises a lot of the open surface area from the envelope glycoprotein ...

Intrigued, Campbell and Desai began exploring how it had defied its predicted fate. As detailed in the current issue of Nature, what they discovered has overturned the prevailing model of how dividing cells ensure that each of their daughter cells emerge with equal numbers of chromosomes, which together package the genome. "Getting the right number of chromosomes into each cell is absolutely essential to sustaining life," explains Desai, PhD, a Ludwig member at the University of California, San Diego, "but it is also something that goes terribly wrong in cancer. The kinds of mistakes that occur when this process isnt functioning properly are seen in about 90% of cancers, and very frequently in advanced and drug-resistant tumors.". Campbell and Desais study focused in particular on four interacting proteins known as the chromosomal passenger complex (CPC) that monitor the appropriate parceling out of chromosomes. When cells initiate division, each chromosome is made of two connected, identical ...
Aurora B kinase is essential for faithful chromosome segregation during mitosis. During (pro)metaphase, Aurora B is concentrated at the inner centromere by the kinases Haspin and Bub1. However, how Haspin and Bub1 collaborate to control Aurora B activity at centromeres remains unclear. Here, we show that either Haspin or Bub1 activity is sufficient to recruit Aurora B to a distinct chromosomal locus. Moreover, we identified a small, Bub1 kinase-dependent Aurora B pool that supported faithful chromosome segregation in otherwise unchallenged cells. Joined inhibition of Haspin and Bub1 activities fully abolished Aurora B accumulation at centromeres. While this impaired the correction of erroneous KT-MT attachments, it did not compromise the mitotic checkpoint, nor the phosphorylation of the Aurora B kinetochore substrates Hec1, Dsn1, and Knl1. This suggests that Aurora B substrates at the kinetochore are not phosphorylated by centromere-localized pools of Aurora B, and calls for a reevaluation of ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Successful cell division requires that chromosomes attach to opposite poles of the mitotic spindle (bi-orientation). Aurora B kinase regulates chromosome-spindle attachments by phosphorylating kinetochore substrates that bind microtubules. Centromere tension stabilizes bi-oriented attachments, but how physical forces are translated into signaling at individual centromeres is unknown. Using fluorescence resonance energy transfer-based biosensors to measure localized phosphorylation dynamics in living cells, we found that phosphorylation of an Aurora B substrate at the kinetochore depended on its distance from the kinase at the inner centromere. Furthermore, repositioning Aurora B closer to the kinetochore prevented stabilization of bi-oriented attachments and activated the spindle checkpoint. Thus, centromere tension can be sensed by increased spatial separation of Aurora B from kinetochore substrates, which reduces phosphorylation and stabilizes kinetochore microtubules.. ...
Aurora kinases play distinct roles during mitosis, with Aurora A being essential for centrosome maturation and spindle assembly and Aurora B functioning at kinetochores in chromosome attachment and at the end of mitosis in cytokinesis (reviewed in refs. 3, 4).. Inhibition of Aurora kinases is emerging as a new strategy for anticancer therapy, and several small-molecule inhibitors have entered clinical trials. In this report, we describe the biochemical and pharmacologic activity profile of PHA-739358, a spectrum-selective small-molecule kinase inhibitor, which was identified during a screen for inhibitors of Aurora kinases. In most of the cell lines tested, cells fail to divide, resulting in polyploidy without a strong impact on the timing of mitosis (data not shown) and finally leading to a reduction in viability. In some cell lines, an increased apoptosis was seen. This speaks for a dominant Aurora B kinase-related mechanism of action for inhibition because Aurora A inhibition would rather ...
The condensin and chromosomal passenger complexes both have important roles in chromosome condensation in mitosis, and the passenger complex has been shown in many systems to be required for localization or phosphorylation of condensin proteins (Giet and Glover 2001; Morishita et al. 2001; Hagstrom et al. 2002; Kaitna et al. 2002; Lavoie et al. 2004; Lipp et al. 2007). Here we observe distinct meiotic consequences of mutations in dcap-g and incenp. Strikingly, SC disassembly was premature in incenp mutants but delayed in dcap-g mutants, and prometaphase I and metaphase I chromosome configurations were disrupted in both mutants, but in clearly distinguishable ways.. That both the condensin and passenger complexes affect SC disassembly is intriguing because little is known about regulation of this process. BubR1 has recently been shown to be required for SC maintenance (Malmanche et al. 2007), although the mechanism has not yet been established. A suggestion that condensin might be required for SC ...
BubR1 is a central component of the spindle assembly checkpoint (SAC) that inhibits progression into anaphase in response to improper kinetochore-microtubule interactions. In addition BubR1 also helps stabilize kinetochore-microtubule interactions by counteracting the Aurora B kinase but the mechanism behind this is not clear. Here we show that BubR1 directly binds to the B56 family of PP2A regulatory subunits through a conserved motif that is phosphorylated by Cdk1 and Plk1. Two highly conserved hydrophobic residues surrounding the S670 Cdk1 phosphorylation site are required for B56 binding and mutation of these residues prevents the establishment of a proper metaphase plate and delays cells in mitosis. Furthermore, we show that phosphorylation of S670 and S676 stimulates the binding of B56 to BubR1 and that BubR1 targets a pool of B56 to kinetochores. Our data suggests that BubR1 counteracts Aurora B kinase activity at improperly attached kinetochores by recruiting B56-PP2A phosphatase ...
The chromosomal passenger complex (CPC) localizes to centromeres in early mitosis to activate its subunit Aurora B kinase. However, it is unclear whether centromeric CPC localization contributes to CPC functions beyond Aurora B activation. Here, we show that an activated CPC that cannot localize to centromeres supports functional assembly of the outer kinetochore but is unable to correct errors in kinetochore-microtubule attachment in Xenopus egg extracts. We find that CPC has two distinct roles at centromeres: one to selectively phosphorylate Ndc80 to regulate attachment and a second, conserved kinase-independent role in the proper composition of inner kinetochore proteins. Although a fully assembled inner kinetochore is not required for outer kinetochore assembly, we find it is essential to recruit tension indicators, such as BubR1 and 3F3/2, to erroneous attachments. We conclude centromeric CPC is necessary for tension-dependent removal of erroneous attachments and for the kinetochore ...

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.

The Aurora kinases regulate key stages of mitosis including centrosome maturation, spindle assembly, chromosome segregation and cytokinesis. Aurora A and B overexpression has also been associated with various human cancers and as such, they have been extensively studied as novel anti-mitotic drug targets. Here we characterise the Aurora kinase inhibitor CCT137690, a highly selective, orally bioavailable imidazo[4,5-b]pyridine derivative that inhibits Aurora A and B kinases with low nanomolar IC50 values in both biochemical and cellular assays and exhibits anti-proliferative activity against a wide range of human solid tumour cell lines. CCT137690 efficiently inhibits histone H3 and TACC3 phosphorylation (Aurora B and Aurora A substrates, respectively) in HCT116 and HeLa cells. Continuous exposure of tumour cells to the inhibitor causes multipolar spindle formation, chromosome misalignment, polyploidy and apoptosis. This is accompanied by p53/p21/BAX induction, thymidine kinase 1 (TK1) ...
10 Feb 2016. In one of the first efforts to date to apply nanotechnology to targeted cancer therapeutics, researchers have created a nanoparticle formulation of a cancer drug that is both effective and nontoxic -- qualities harder to achieve with the free drug.. Their nanoparticle creation releases the potent but toxic targeted cancer drug directly to tumours, while sparing healthy tissue.. The findings in rodents with human tumours have helped launch clinical trials of the nanoparticle-encapsulated version of the drug, which are currently underway.. Aurora kinase inhibitors are molecularly targeted agents that disrupt cancers cell cycle.. While effective, the inhibitors have proven highly toxic to patients and have stalled in late-stage trials.. Development of several other targeted cancer drugs has been abandoned because of unacceptable toxicity.. To improve drug safety and efficacy, Susan Ashton and colleagues designed polymeric nanoparticles called Accurins to deliver an Aurora kinase B ...

We previously reported that phosphorylation of myosin II-interacting guanine nucleotide exchange aspect (MyoGEF) by polo-like kinase 1 (Plk1) promotes the localization of MyoGEF towards the central spindle and boosts MyoGEF activity toward RhoA during mitosis. that aurora B colocalizes with MyoGEF on the central midbody and spindle during cytokinesis. Suppression of aurora B activity by an aurora B inhibitor disrupts the localization of MyoGEF towards the central spindle. Furthermore T544A mutation inhibits the localization of MyoGEF towards the cleavage furrow and reduces MyoGEF activity toward RhoA during mitosis. Used together our outcomes claim that aurora B coordinates with Plk1 to modify MyoGEF activation and localization hence adding to the legislation of cytokinesis. translated Myc-aurora B was synthesized using the TNT SP6 quick-coupled transcription/translation program (Promega Madison WI) based on the manufacturers guidelines.

Development of anticancer drugs targeting Aurora B, an important member of the serine/threonine kinases family, has been extensively focused on in recent years. In this work, by applying an integrated computational method, including comparative molecular field analysis (CoMFA), comparative molecular similarity indices analysis (CoMSIA), homology modeling and molecular docking, we investigated the structural determinants of Aurora B inhibitors based on three different series of derivatives of 108 molecules. The resultant optimum 3D-QSAR models exhibited (q(2) = 0.605, r(pred)(2) = 0.826), (q(2) = 0.52, r(pred)(2) = 0.798) and (q(2) = 0.582, r(pred)(2) = 0.971) for MK-0457, GSK1070916 and SNS-314 classes, respectively, and the 3D contour maps generated from these models were analyzed individually. The contour map analysis for the MK-0457 model revealed the relative importance of steric and electrostatic effects for Aurora B inhibition, whereas, the electronegative groups with hydrogen bond ...
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 ...

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.. ...
During animal cell division, the final separation of daughter cells requires ESCRT-III (endosomal sorting complex required for transport III), the core membrane scission machinery. Carlton et al. (see the Perspective by Petronczki and Uhlmann) report that ESCRT-III modulates abscission timing through one of its subunits, CHMP4C. Depletion of CHMP4C results in faster resolution of the midbody, the cytoplasmic bridge that connects the daughter cells at the end of cytokinesis. This phenotype correlates with a differential spatiotemporal distribution of CHMP4C at the midbody. As CHMP4C is essential for activating the Aurora B-mediated abscission checkpoint, consequently, depletion of CHMP4C results in the accumulation of genetic damage. Thus, the ESCRT machinery protects the cell against genetic damage by coordinating its cytokinetic activity with the abscission checkpoint.. J. G. Carlton, A. Caballe, M. Agromayor, M. Kloc, J. Martin-Serrano, ESCRT-III governs the Aurora B-mediated abscission ...

Ilorasertib, also know as ABT-348, is a novel, potent and orally bioavailable inhibitor of the Aurora kinases as well as the VEGF and PDGF families of receptor tyrosine kinases and is currently in Phase I clinical trials. ABT-348 has nanomolar potency (IC50) for inhibiting binding and cellular auto-phosphorylation of Aurora B (7 and 13 nM), C (1 and 13 nM) and A (120 and 189 nM). Based upon its unique spectrum of activity, ABT 348 was evaluated and found effective in representative solid tumor (HT1080 and MiaPaCa, tumor stasis) and hematological malignancy (RS4;11, regression) xenografts. These results provide the rationale for clinical assessment of ABT-348 as a therapeutic agent in the treatment of cancer.

Accurate segregation of chromosomes in mitosis requires that spindle microtubules attach sister kinetochores to opposite poles of the mitotic spindle (biorientation). To achieve biorientation of all chromosomes, incorrect attachments are selectively destabilized, providing a fresh opportunity to biorient, whereas correct attachments are stabilized. Tension across the centromere may be the signal that distinguishes different attachment states, as spindle microtubules pull bioriented sister kinetochores in the opposite direction. Destabilization of incorrect attachments requires the Ipl1/Aurora B kinase, which phosphorylates kinetochore substrates that directly interact with microtubules. The present review focuses on how Aurora B regulates attachments in response to centromere tension.. ...
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 ...

Pluripotency transcription programs by core transcription factors (CTFs) might be reset during M/G1 transition to maintain the pluripotency of embryonic stem cells (ESCs). However, little is known about how CTFs are governed during cell cycle progression. Here, we demonstrate that the regulation of Oct4 by Aurora kinase b (Aurkb)/protein phosphatase 1 (PP1) during the cell cycle is important for resetting Oct4 to pluripotency and cell cycle genes in determining the identity of ESCs. Aurkb phosphorylates Oct4(S229) during G2/M phase, leading to the dissociation of Oct4 from chromatin, whereas PP1 binds Oct4 and dephosphorylates Oct4(S229) during M/G1 transition, which resets Oct4-driven transcription for pluripotency and the cell cycle. Aurkb phosphor-mimetic and PP1 binding-deficient mutations in Oct4 alter the cell cycle, effect the loss of pluripotency in ESCs, and decrease the efficiency of somatic cell reprogramming. Our findings provide evidence that the cell cycle is linked directly to ...

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.. After completion of ...

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 ...
At the outset of this work, the existence of a second aurora-like gene in Drosophila, aurora B, was already known (previously named ial; Reich et al. 1999), but there were no known mutations at the locus and the enzyme had not been localized within cells. The proximity of other genes made the prospect of generating such mutations by classical genetic means somewhat daunting and although a model system for the targeted disruption of genes has recently been developed (Rong and Golic 2000), this is also a time-consuming and not yet widely used procedure. In several organisms dsRNAi has offered opportunities for studying the genetic basis of many aspects of cell biology in the absence of mutations in the genes directing these activities. This has been perhaps best demonstrated in C. elegans, where the technique is most widely used (Hunter 1999, Hunter 2000). A simple system for dsRNAi in cultured Drosophila cells not only offers the means of eliminating specific gene expression (Caplen et al. 2000; ...
5648 The Aurora family of serine/threonine kinases (Aurora A, Aurora B, and Aurora C) plays a key role in cells orderly progression through mitosis. Elevated expression levels of Aurora kinases have been detected in a high percentage of melanoma, colon, breast, ovarian, gastric, and pancreatic tumors, and in a subset of these tumors the AURKA locus (20q13) is amplified. SNS-314, a novel aminothiazole-derived urea, is a selective inhibitor of Aurora kinases A, B, and C with IC50 values in the low nanomolar range. SNS-314 potently inhibits cell proliferation and induces polyploidy (, 4N DNA) in a diverse panel of human cancer cell lines. In the present study we investigated the pharmacodynamic effects and in vivo activity of SNS-314 in human tumor xenograft models. SNS-314 displayed potent anti-tumor activity in HCT-116 (colon), PC-3 (prostate), CALU-6 (NSCLC) and MDA-MB-231 (breast) models. Tumor growth inhibition in these xenograft models ranged from 67.5 to 96.6% on a bi-weekly administration ...

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
The Shugoshin/Aurora circuitry that controls the timely release of cohesins from sister chromatids in meiosis and mitosis is widely conserved among eukaryotes, although little is known about its function in organisms whose chromosomes lack a localized centromere. Here we show that Caenorhabditis elegans chromosomes rely on an alternative mechanism to protect meiotic cohesin that is shugoshin-independent and instead involves the activity of a new chromosome-associated protein named LAB-1 (Long Arm of the Bivalent). LAB-1 preserves meiotic sister chromatid cohesion by restricting the localization of the C. elegans Aurora B kinase, AIR-2, to the interface between homologs via the activity of the PP1/Glc7 phosphatase GSP-2. The localization of LAB-1 to chromosomes of dividing embryos and the suppression of mitotic-specific defects in air-2 mutant embryos with reduced LAB-1 activity support a global role of LAB-1 in antagonizing AIR-2 in both meiosis and mitosis. Although the localization of a GFP ...
