The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTP) family. PTPs are signaling molecules that regulate a variety of cellular processes including cell growth differentiation mitotic cycle and oncogenic transformation. This PTP contains a C-terminal PEST motif which serves as a protein-protein interaction domain and may regulate protein intracellular half-life. This PTP was found to bind and dephosphorylate the product of the oncogene c-ABL and thus may play a role in oncogenesis. This PTP was also shown to interact with and dephosphorylate various products related to cytoskeletal structure and cell adhesion such as p130 (Cas) CAKbeta/PTK2B PSTPIP1 and paxillin. This suggests it has a regulatory role in controlling cell shape and mobility. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms. [provided by RefSeq Oct 2008]
