Protein tyrosine phosphatase receptor type sigma
R PTP sigma
Receptor-type tyrosine-protein phosphatase S
Receptor-type tyrosine-protein phosphatase sigma
FunctionInteracts with LAR-interacting protein LIP.1.
Tissue specificityDetected in all tissues tested except for placenta and liver.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein-tyrosine phosphatase family. Receptor class 2A subfamily. Contains 8 fibronectin type-III domains. Contains 3 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains. Contains 2 tyrosine-protein phosphatase domains.
Post-translational modificationsA cleavage occurs, separating the extracellular domain from the transmembrane segment. This process called 'ectodomain shedding' is thought to be involved in receptor desensitization, signal transduction and/or membrane localization.
