anti-CDCA8 antibody
CDCA8 Antibody: CDCA8 is a component of a chromosomal passenger complex (CPC) required for stability of the bipolar mitotic spindle. The chromosomal passenger complex, which includes Survivin, CDCA8, INCENP and Aurora-B, is known to play crucial roles during mitosis and cell division. It was found that CDCA8 interacting with Aurora-B, INCENP and Survivin, increases during G2/M phase and then reduces after exit from M phase. CDCA8 is cell cycle regulated, down-regulated in response to p53/Rb-signaling, and up-regulated in many types of cancerous tissues. In Drosophila cells, inactivation of CDCA8 results in polyploidy, delayed mitosis and abnormal tissue development, indicating its critical role for cell proliferation. Recent studies show that CDCA8 is essential for cell proliferation during early embryonic development, and its early embryonic lethality cannot be rescued by the loss of p53. Its aberrant expression is linked to a poor prognosis for gastric cancer.

NCBI Summary for CDCA8
This gene encodes a component of the chromosomal passenger complex. This complex is an essential regulator of mitosis and cell division. This protein is cell-cycle regulated and is required for chromatin-induced microtubule stabilization and spindle formation. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. Pseudgenes of this gene are found on chromosomes 7, 8 and 16. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2013]
UniProt Comments for CDCA8
Borealin: Component of the chromosomal passenger complex (CPC), a complex that acts as a key regulator of mitosis. The CPC complex has essential functions at the centromere in ensuring correct chromosome alignment and segregation and is required for chromatin-induced microtubule stabilization and spindle assembly. In the complex, it may be required to direct the CPC to centromeric DNA. Major effector of the TTK kinase in the control of attachment-error-correction and chromosome alignment. Belongs to the borealin family.
