Degradation of human Aurora2 protein kinase by the anaphase-promoting complex-ubiquitin-proteasome pathway


Human Aurora2 was originally identified by its close homology to yeast IPL1 and fly aurora, which are key regulators of chromosome segregation and a family of serine/threonine kinases. Here we demonstrate that the Aurora2 protein is degraded rapidly after G2/M phase release in mammalian cells. Aurora2 protein has a rapid turnover rate with a half-life of… (More)
