Protein Tyrosine Phosphatases in the Human Genome


Protein Tyrosine Phosphatases in the Human Genome

Andres Alonso et al. Cell.


Tyrosine phosphorylation is catalyzed by protein tyrosine kinases, which are represented by 90 genes in the human genome. Here, we present the set of 107 genes in the human genome that encode members of the four protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTP) families. The four families of PTPases, their substrates, structure, function, regulation, and the role of these enzymes in human disease will be discussed.
