PTP1B (C-terminal region)
PTP1B is a nonreceptor type protein tyrosine phosphatase that has essential roles in insulin and leptin signaling, as well as important functions in growth factor and integrin signaling. The structure of PTP1B includes a conserved phosphatase domain, C-terminal hydrophobic residues for targeting to the cytoplasmic face of the endoplasmic reticulum, and proline-rich regions characteristic of SH3 domain binding motifs. PTP1B can interact with N-Cadherin and dephosphorylate β-catenin associated with cadherin complexes. PTP1B also interacts with Insulin and EGF receptors, and undergoes phosphorylation after receptor stimulation. Tyrosine phosphorylation at Tyr-66, Tyr-152, and Tyr-153 occurs after insulin receptor activation, and tyrosine phosphorylation of Tyr-152 may be required for interactions with N-Cadherin. In addition, Akt can phosphorylate Ser-50 and this phosphorylation can reduce PTP1B activity.
Protein A Purified
Clone M234 was generated from a recombinant protein corresponding to amino acids in the C-terminal region of human PTP1B.
Storage at -20°C is recommended, as aliquots may be taken without freeze/thawing due to presence of 50% glycerol. Stable for at least 1 year at -20°C.
PBS + 1 mg/ml BSA, 0.05% NaN3 and 50% glycerol
This antibody detects a 50 kDa* band corresponding to PTP1B in western blots of human A431, Jurkat, and HeLa cells. It does not detect PTP1B in rat PC12 or mouse SYF cells.
