AURKB

(redirected from ARK2)

AURKB

A gene on chromosome 17p13.1 that encodes Aurora kinase B, which is involved in regulating many mitotic events. Aurora B is the catalytic component of the chromosomal passenger complex (CPC), which is critical for the correct progression through and completion of mitosis. It phosphorylates the CPC subunits BIRC5/survivin, CDCA8/borealin and INCENP, the last of which increases AURKB activity.
