Gene: AURKB (aurora kinase B) Homo sapiens
Symbol: AURKB
Name: aurora kinase B
RGD ID: 731309
Description: Exhibits kinase binding activity and protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including mitotic spindle midzone assembly; positive regulation of DNA metabolic process; and positive regulation of cell cycle process. Localizes to several cellular components, including chromosome passenger complex; chromosome, centromeric region; and midbody. Biomarker of endometrial carcinoma and prostate carcinoma in situ.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
