The Role of Aurora Kinase A (AURKA) in Regulating Translation of Oncogenes in Gastrointestinal Cancers

Aurora kinase A (AURKA) is frequently amplified and overexpressed in gastrointestinal cancers. In this report, we show that AURKA and EIF4E regulate the expression of the same oncogenes, suggesting that AURKA could play a role in regulating EIF4E-cap dependent translation of oncogenes. Inhibition of AURKA could be a plausible therapeutic approach in these cancers.

A Hybrid Photometric and Spectral Algorithm for Efficient Detection of Gravitationally Lensed Quasars

A novel method was developed to identify gravitationally lensed quasars, consisting of a morphological algorithm directed at finding wide-separation lens candidates and a point spread function (PSF)-difference-based algorithm aimed at identifying close-separation lens candidates.
