Aurora A in HeLa Human Cell Line. Aurora A was detected in immersion fixed HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line using Goat Anti-Human Aurora A Biotinylated Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # BAF3295) at 5 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Rabbit IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL004) and counterstained with DAPI(blue). Specific staining was localized to mitotic spindles. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.

Background: Aurora A
Aurora A is a serine/threonine kinase that regulates chromosome segregation and cytokinesis during mitosis. Its kinase activity is thought to regulate the G2 to M transition of the cell cycle by phosphorylating BRCA1. Aberrant expression and activity of Aurora A in tumors, including breast, ovarian, gastric and colorectal cancer, suggests that it plays a role in tumor development and progression.
