ATP-competitive inhibitor of Aurora B kinase (IC50 = 250 nM). Prevents chromosome alignment and segregation; also induces polyploidy and prevents histone H3-Ser10 phosphorylation. Overrides the spindle assembly checkpoint and induces mitotic exit in monastrol- and taxol-treated HeLa cells.

Cell Cycle & DNA Damage Repair Poster
In normal cells, each stage of the cell cycle is tightly regulated, however in cancer cells many genes and proteins that are involved in the regulation of the cell cycle are mutated or over expressed. Adapted from the 2015 Cancer Product Guide, Edition 3, this poster summarizes the stages of the cell cycle and DNA repair. It also highlights strategies for enhancing replicative stress in cancer cells to force mitotic catastrophe and cell death.
