Scientific Background : AURORA A belongs to a multigenic family of mitotic serine/threonine kinases which are involved in the control of chromosome segregation. AURORA A is involved in centrosome separation, duplication and maturation as well as in bipolar spindle assembly and stability (1). AURORA A is expressed and active at the highest level during G2-M phase of the cell cycle. Overexpression of AURORA A has been found to be correlated with the grade of various human solid tumours. Ectopic AURORA A overexpression in any culture cell line leads to polyploidy and centrosome amplification (2).
