Mitotic Phosphorylation of Histone H3: Spatio-Temporal Regulation by Mammalian Aurora Kinases

It is shown that the expression of Aurora-A and Aurora-B, two kinases of the Aurora/AIK family, is tightly coordinated with H3 phosphorylation during the G2/M transition, providing an attractive link between cell transformation, chromatin modifications and a specific kinase system.

Haspin: A Mitotic Histone Kinase Required for Metaphase Chromosome Alignment

Possible mechanisms of haspin action and the function of histonephosphorylation in mitosis are discussed and some of the questions raised are outlined, including what role haspin might play in cancer.

Histone H3 Thr-3 Phosphorylation by Haspin Positions Aurora B at Centromeres in Mitosis

It is shown that phosphorylation of histone H3 threonine 3 by Haspin is necessary for CPC accumulation at centromeres and that the CPC subunit Survivin binds directly to H3T3ph.

Calyculin A induces prematurely condensed chromosomes without histone H1 phosphorylation in mammalian G1-phase cells

It is shown here that one can induce prematurely condensed chromosomes in G1-phase human and mouse cells by treating them with the protein phosphatase inhibitor calyculin A, but histone H1 is not phosphorylated in these G 1-PCCs.

H2B (Ser10) Phosphorylation is Induced during Apoptosis and Meiosis in S. cerevisiae

A role for H2B phosphorylation at serine 10 (Ser10) is uncovered in another biological event that is associated with dramatic alterations in higher-order chromatin structure, meiosis, and strong staining is shown, indicative of H2 B (Ser 10) phosphorylated, during the pachytene stage of yeast meiotic prophase is shown.

Mitotic Substrates of the Kinase Aurora with Roles in Chromatin Regulation Identified Through Quantitative Phosphoproteomics of Fission Yeast

System-wide analysis of proteins phosphorylated by the mitotic kinase Aurora in fission yeast suggests widespread functions for this kinase in regulating chromatin dynamics and suggests that Aurora has a broader role in regulation of chromatin structure and may protect cells from DNA damage.

Neither Aurora B Activity nor Histone H3 Phosphorylation Is Essential for Chromosome Condensation During Meiotic Maturation of Porcine Oocytes1

It is suggested that AURKB activity and Ser-10 phosphorylation of histone H3 are not required for chromosome condensation in pig oocytes, but might be required for further processing of chromosomes during meiosis.



Phosphorylation of histone H3 at serine 10 is correlated with chromosome condensation during mitosis and meiosis in Tetrahymena.

Micronuclear H3 phosphorylation occurs at a single site (Ser-10) in the amino-terminal domain of histone H3, the same site phosphorylated during mitosis in mammalian cells, and is likely involved in both mitotic and meiotic chromosome condensation.

Aurora/Ipl1p-related kinases, a new oncogenic family of mitotic serine-threonine kinases.

A generic name is suggested for Aurora/Ipl1p-related kinase (AIRK) because the three human homologues are overexpressed in various primary cancers and overexpression of one of these kinases transforms cells.

Repression domain of the yeast global repressor Tup1 interacts directly with histones H3 and H4.

It is reported that Tup1 directly interacts with the amino-terminal tails of histones H3 and H4, providing a molecular basis for this connection and suggesting a mechanism whereby the organization of chromatin may be modulated in response to changing environmental signals.

A Novel Mammalian, Mitotic Spindle–associated Kinase Is Related to Yeast and Fly Chromosome Segregation Regulators

Data suggest that IAK1 is a new member of an emerging subfamily of the serine/threonine kinase superfamily, which may be important regulators of chromosome segregation in mammalian cells.

The Aurora/Ipl1p kinase family: regulators of chromosome segregation and cytokinesis.

The conserved protein kinase Ipl1 regulates microtubule binding to kinetochores in budding yeast.

It is proposed that Ipl1p regulates kinetochore function via Ndc10p phosphorylation and localizes to the mitotic spindle and its levels are regulated during the cell cycle, similar to that of IPl1p homologs in higher eukaryotes, such as the human aurora2 protein.

Modification of histones during the mitotic and meiotic cycle of yeast

Defects in Saccharomyces cerevisiae protein phosphatase type I activate the spindle/kinetochore checkpoint.

Results support a role for Glc7p in regulating kinetochore attachment to the spindle, an event monitored by theSpindle/kinetochores checkpoint.
