    basic FUNCTION
  • may be contributing to the mechanism of contact inhibition of cell growth
  • inhibits proliferation and migration of colon carcinoma cells and is upregulated by protective nutrients
  • may act as a tumor suppressor
  • DEP-1 contributes to the contact inhibition of endothelial cell growth via dephosphorylation of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2
  • positive regulator of VEGF mediated Src and Akt activation and endothelial cell survival
  • implicated in cell growth and differentiation as well as in regulating phosphorylation of junctional proteins
  • can modify the phosphorylation state of tight junction proteins and play a role in regulating permeability
  • enhances platelet responsiveness to collagen by maintaining a pool of active Src family kinases
  • receptor-like protein-tyrosine phosphatase known to inhibit transduction of mitogenic signals in non-hematopoietic cells, and in in the hematopoietic lineage, inhibited signal transduction downstream of T cell receptor
  • also plays an activating role via dephosphorylation of the inhibitory tyrosine in SRC
  • negative regulator of TCR signaling, which is in apparent contradiction with data obtained from other leukocyte populations
  • able to activate Src Family Kinases involved in TCR signal transduction
  • may regulate differentiation of normal mammary epithelia and dysregulation of protein localisation may be associated with tumorigenesis
  • plays a dominant role in activating SRC family kinases in platelets relative to PTPN1, and both PTPs are required for optimal platelet activation and aggregate formation under high arterial shear rates
  • promotes airway hyperresponsiveness through SRC family kinases
  • PTPRC and PTPRJ are transmembrane tyrosine phosphatases with large ectodomains that have activatory and inhibitory effects on TCR triggering
  • positively regulates SRC family kinases and critical biological functions in endothelial and hematopoietic cells
  • receptor-like protein tyrosine phosphatase mainly known for its antiproliferative and tumor-suppressive functions
  • role as a mediator of an invasive cell program implicating SRC activation and the promotion of breast cancer progression
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell life, proliferation/growth
    PTPRJ regulates negatively T cell receptor signaling possibly through interfering with the phosphorylation of Phospholipase C Gamma 1 and Linker for Activation of T Cells. This protein can also dephosphorylate the PDGF beta receptor, and may be involved in UV-induced signal transduction
    a component
    small molecule
  • VEGFR2
  • may interact with and dephosphorylate PIK3CD when it is phosphorylated and modulate the magnitude of PI3K activity
  • EGFR and PTPRJ physically interact at the cell surface and maintain bidirectional enzyme-substrate interactions, which are relevant to their respective oncogenic and tumor-suppressive functions
  • interaction with occludin and TJP1 specific (occludin and TJP1 were dephosphorylated by PTPRJ but not the other phosphatases)
  • PTP negatively regulating FLT3 phosphorylation and signaling
  • PTPRJ is negatively regulating FLT3 signaling activity and its loss may contribute to but is not sufficient for leukemogenic cell transformation
  • SDC2 is a novel ligand for the protein tyrosine phosphatase receptor PTPRJ
  • functions as a receptor for THBS1 and mediates its inhibition of cell growth
  • direct interaction of PTPRJ with the hematopoietic receptor-tyrosine kinase Fms-like tyrosine kinase-3 (FLT3)
