The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTP) family. PTPs are known to be signaling molecules that regulate a variety of cellular processes including cell growth differentiation mitotic cycle and oncogenic transformation. This PTP contains an N-terminal domain similar to cytoskeletal- associated proteins including band 4.1 ezrin merlin and radixin. This PTP was shown to specially interact with BMX/ETK a member of Tec tyrosine kinase family characterized by a multimodular structures including PH SH3 and SH2 domains. The interaction of this PTP with BMX kinase was found to increase the activation of STAT3 but not STAT2 kinase. Studies of the similar gene in mice suggested the possible roles of this PTP in liver regeneration and spermatogenesis. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
