  • is attached to the ER via a hydrophobic region made of 35 AAs (AAs 400435) at the C-terminal tail, while the catalytic domain is exposed to the cytosolic side of the ER
  • protein-tyrosine phosphatase family
  • non-receptor class 1 subfamily
  • CATEGORY receptor membrane phosphatase
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     intracellular
    intracellular,cytoplasm,organelle,endoplasmic reticulum
  • localized to the cytoplasmic face of the endoplasmic reticulum
  • resident of the ER membrane
  • basic FUNCTION
  • acting as a putative growth suppressor that plays an important role in the regulation of cytokine signaling
  • regulating both insulin, leptin signaling and adipocyte leptin production through its neuronal form and probably is essential for the development of leptin resistance
  • playing a potential role in myeloid development, macrophage activation and a physiological role in immune regulation
  • negatively regulating macrophage development through CSF1 signaling
  • reduces the phosphorylation of PRDX4, and contributes to the redox-controlled processes occurring at the ER
  • role of microtubules and cell contacts in the positioning of ER-bound PTPN1 the peripheral region of growth cones, which may be required for the positive role of PTPN1 in axon elongation, filopodia stabilization, and Src activity
  • implicated in the regulation of the insulin receptor
  • regulates the endosomal sorting machinery
  • can influence RTK signaling in a previously unrecognized manner
  • governs signaling and biological activity of EPHA3
  • modulator of brown fat adipogenesis, suggesting that adipocyte differentiation requires regulated expression of PTPN1
  • in POMC neurons plays a role in short-term cold-induced reduction of spontaneous physical activity and may influence cold-induced thermogenesis via enhanced activation of the thyroid axis
  • major regulator of adiposity and insulin sensitivity
  • negative regulator of IR (insulin receptor) activation and glucose homoeostasis
  • may play a critical role in multiple signaling networks involved in oncogenesis
  • modulates early endosome fusion and trafficking of MET and epidermal growth factor receptors
  • key negative regulator of leptin and insulin signaling, is positively correlated with adiposity and contributes to insulin resistance
  • may play an important role in suppressing hepatocarcinogenesis
  • physiological regulator of glucose homeostasis and body mass, and has been implicated in endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress
  • negatively regulates ER stress, as well as insulin and leptin resistance
  • PTPN1 and PTPRJ are required for optimal platelet activation and aggregate formation under high arterial shear rates
  • is capable of binding and dephosphorylating IFNAR1
  • in addition to modulating FGFR3 phosphorylation, PTPN1 and PTPN2 constrain the kinase domain by fostering an inactive-state
  • controls non-mitochondrial oxygen consumption by regulating RNF213 to promote tumour survival during hypoxia
    a component
    small molecule
  • with TYK2, JAK2
  • can efficiently catalyze the removal of the phosphoryl group from phosphocaveolin-1 (CAV1)
  • interacting with TRPV6 (with the N-terminal domain of TRPV6 within a region of amino acids 1-191)
  • interacted with STAT6 in an interleukin 4 (IL4)-inducible manner, and negative regulator of interleukin 4-induced STAT6 signaling)
  • interacts with STAM2 at defined phosphotyrosine sites, directly targets STAM2, and tyrosine phosphorylation affects STAM localization and function
  • EPHA3-PTPN1 interaction can occur directly at the plasma membrane
  • important negative regulator of leptin signaling
  • NCK1 interacts with PTPN1 and the NCK1/PTPN1 complex inducibly associates with the IR for the attenuation of IR activation in mammalian cells
  • GRB14 inhibits the activity of PTPN1, the major negative regulator of insulin receptor (INSR) signaling, in a phosphorylation-regulated manner
  • PTPN1 might keep PRDX4 active by reducing its phosphorylation
  • physiologically-relevant modulator of ER stress in brown adipocytes and PTPN1 deficiency modulates EIF2AK3 phosphorylation and protein synthesis
  • SCLY disruption increases the levels of insulin-signaling inhibitor PTPN1
  • PTPN1 is a specific regulator of IFNAR1 endocytosis stimulated by IFN1, but not by ligand-independent inducers of IFNAR1 ubiquitination
  • PTPN1 regulates the phosphorylation state of retinal GAB1
  • CHRM3 preserves the endothelial barrier function through a mechanism potentially maintaining PTPN1 activity, keeping the adherens junction proteins (AJPs) dephosphorylation
  • in addition to modulating FGFR3 phosphorylation, PTPN1 and PTPN2 constrain the kinase domain by fostering an inactive-state
  • NCK1 interacts with PTPN1 and also regulates PTPN1 expression, playing a role in regulating the PI3K/AKT1 pathway
