Gene: Aurkb (aurora kinase B) Mus musculus
Symbol: Aurkb
Name: aurora kinase B
Description: Exhibits histone serine kinase activity. Involved in histone H3-S28 phosphorylation. Localizes to the chromosomal region; microtubule cytoskeleton; and midbody. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; integumental system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human AURKB (aurora kinase B).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
