Target

  • Function
    PP2A can modulate the activity of phosphorylase B kinase casein kinase 2, mitogen-stimulated S6 kinase, and MAP-2 kinase. Cooperates with SGOL2 to protect centromeric cohesin from separase-mediated cleavage in oocytes specifically during meiosis I (By similarity). Can dephosphorylate SV40 large T antigen and p53/TP53. Dephosphorylates SV40 large T antigen, preferentially on serine residues 120, 123, 677, and perhaps 679. The C subunit was most active, followed by the AC form, which was more active than the ABC form, and activity of all three forms was strongly stimulated by manganese, and to a lesser extent by magnesium. Dephosphorylation by the AC form, but not C or ABC form is inhibited by small T antigen. Activates RAF1 by dephosphorylating it at 'Ser-259'.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the PPP phosphatase family. PP-1 subfamily.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Reversibly methyl esterified on Leu-309. Carboxyl methylation may play a role in holoenzyme assembly, enhancing the affinity of the PP2A core enzyme for some, but not all, regulatory subunits. It varies during the cell cycle.
    Phosphorylation of either threonine (by autophosphorylation-activated protein kinase) or tyrosine results in inactivation of the phosphatase. Auto-dephosphorylation has been suggested as a mechanism for reactivation.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Chromosome > centromere. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > spindle pole. In prometaphase cells, but not in anaphase cells, localizes at centromeres. During mitosis, also found at spindle poles. Centromeric localization requires the presence of SGOL2.

  • Flow cytometry analysis of HeLa (human cervix adenocarcinoma) cells labelling PP2A alpha + beta (red) with unpurified ab32141 at dilution of 1/20. Goat anti rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488) at 1/2000 was used as the secondary antibody. Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde and permeabilised with 90% methanol. Isotype control antibody was Rabbit monoclonal IgG (black). The blue line shows cells without incubation with primary and secondary antibodies.
