Summaries for PTPN13 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PTPN13 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTP) family. PTPs are signaling molecules that regulate a variety of cellular processes including cell growth, differentiation, mitotic cycle, and oncogenic transformation. This PTP is a large intracellular protein. It has a catalytic PTP domain at its C-terminus and two major structural domains: a region with five PDZ domains and a FERM domain that binds to plasma membrane and cytoskeletal elements. This PTP was found to interact with, and dephosphorylate, Fas receptor and IkappaBalpha through the PDZ domains. This suggests it has a role in Fas mediated programmed cell death. This PTP was also shown to interact with GTPase-activating protein, and thus may function as a regulator of Rho signaling pathways. Four alternatively spliced transcript variants, which encode distinct proteins, have been reported. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]

GeneCards Summary for PTPN13 Gene

PTPN13 (Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase, Non-Receptor Type 13) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PTPN13 include Amyloidosis, Hereditary, Transthyretin-Related and Tropical Spastic Paraparesis. Among its related pathways are Ephrin B reverse signaling and EphB-EphrinB Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include phosphatase activity and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase regulatory subunit binding. An important paralog of this gene is PTPN14.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PTPN13 Gene

  • Tyrosine phosphatase which regulates negatively FAS-induced apoptosis and NGFR-mediated pro-apoptotic signaling (PubMed:15611135). May regulate phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) signaling through dephosphorylation of PIK3R2 (PubMed:23604317).
