Targeted therapy is one of the major treatment modalities in medical oncology. Targeted therapy aims to inhibit oncogenic pathways by interfering with target biomolecules. For this reason drug designers have focused on investigation of new targets in order to develop efficient cancer drugs [1]. Aurora kinases are important members of the serine/threonine kinases and three forms of the Aurora kinases have been identified: Aurora-A, Aurora-B, and Aurora-C in human. Especially, Aurora-A and Aurora-B play key roles in mitotic checkpoint activation, chromosome orientation, cell proliferation, cytokinesis, and mitotic spindle formation in cells. Alteration of their expression level is related with mitotic errors and aberrant expression of these enzymes may trigger multiple oncogenic pathways. Therefore, Aurora-A and Aurora-B kinases have been potential targets in new generation cancer drug development research.
