Bora in MCF‑7 Human Cell Line. Bora was detected in immersion fixed MCF-7 human breast cancer cell line using Goat Anti-Human Bora Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF6856) at 15 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm.

Background: Bora

Bora (Aurora borealis; also C13orf34) is a 61 kDa member of the Bora family of proteins. It is ubiquitously expressed, and plays a key role in cell cycle progression. Plk1 (polo-like kinase-1) is a phosphorylase that is important to the cell during the G2/M transition and mitosis. Its activity is initially regulated by Aurora-A, which phosphorylates and activates Plk1 on Thr210. Bora, Aurora-A and Plk1 all appear to form a complex during G2. Bora predisposes Plk1 to the actions of Aurora-A. Once activated by Aurora-A, Plk1 drives the mitotic mechanism, which includes a third-party phosphorylation of Bora. This initiates Bora dissociation from Aurora-A with subsequent ubiquitination and degradation. Human Bora is 559 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains a Ser-rich region (aa 188-278) and at least eight utilized Ser phosphorylation sites. Phosphorylation may increase the SDS-PAGE MW of Bora to 75-85 kDa. There is one potential alternative start site that lies 60 aa upstream of the standard start site, and a second splice variant the shows a 17 aa substitution for aa 1-87. Over aa 2-180, human Bora shares 84% aa identity with mouse Bora.
