A protein phosphatase is a phosphatase enzyme that removes a phosphate group from the phosphorylated amino acid residue of its substrate protein. Protein phosphorylation is one of the most common forms of reversible protein posttranslational modification (PTM), with up to 30% of all proteins being phosphorylated at any given time. Protein kinases (PKs) are the effectors of phosphorylation and catalyse the transfer of a γ-phosphate from ATP to specific amino acids on proteins. Several hundred PKs exist in mammals and are classified into distinct super-families. Proteins are phosphorylated predominantly on Ser, Thr and Tyr residues, which account for 79.3, 16.9 and 3.8% respectively of the phosphoproteome, at least in mammals. In contrast, protein phosphatases (PPs) are the primary effectors of dephosphorylation and can be grouped into three main classes based on sequence, structure and catalytic function. The largest class of PPs is the phosphoprotein phosphatase (PPP) family comprising PP1, PP2A, PP2B, PP4, PP5, PP6 and PP7, and the protein phosphatase Mg2+ or Mn2+-dependent (PPM) family, composed primarily of PP2C.
Source: The immunogen used to generate the purified antibody was a peptide conjugated to KLH corresponding to the sequence NH2-Thr-Pro-Pro-Arg-Gly-Met-Ile-Thr-Lys-Gln-Ala-Lys-Lys-COOH. This peptide antibody corresponds to C -terminal peptide of PP1 gamma 1 catalytic subunit having a MW of 37kD. The sequence used is amino acid 311-323.

FunctionProtein phosphatase 1 (PP1) is essential for cell division, and participates in the regulation of glycogen metabolism, muscle contractility and protein synthesis. Involved in regulation of ionic conductances and long-term synaptic plasticity. May play an important role in dephosphorylating substrates such as the postsynaptic density-associated Ca(2+)/calmodulin dependent protein kinase II. Component of the PTW/PP1 phosphatase complex, which plays a role in the control of chromatin structure and cell cycle progression during the transition from mitosis into interphase.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the PPP phosphatase family. PP-1 subfamily.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Nucleus. Nucleus > nucleolus. Nucleus > nucleoplasm. Nucleus speckle. Chromosome > centromere > kinetochore. Cleavage furrow. Midbody. Colocalizes with SPZ1 in the nucleus (By similarity). Rapidly exchanges between the nucleolar, nucleoplasmic and cytoplasmic compartments. Highly mobile in cells and can be relocalized through interaction with targeting subunits. In the presence of PPP1R8 relocalizes from the nucleolus to nuclear speckles. Shows a dynamic targeting to specific sites throughout the cell cycle. Highly concentrated in nucleoli of interphase cells and localizes at kinetochores early in mitosis. Relocalization to chromosome-containing regions occurs at the transition from early to late anaphase. Also accumulates at the cleavage furrow and midbody by telophase.
