Summaries for PTPN7 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PTPN7 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTP) family. PTPs are known to be signaling molecules that regulate a variety of cellular processes including cell growth, differentiation, mitotic cycle, and oncogenic transformation. This gene is preferentially expressed in a variety of hematopoietic cells, and is an early response gene in lymphokine stimulated cells. The non-catalytic N-terminus of this PTP can interact with MAP kinases and suppress the MAP kinase activities. This PTP was shown to be involved in the regulation of T cell antigen receptor (TCR) signaling, which was thought to function through dephosphorylating the molecules related to MAP kinase pathway. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2010]

GeneCards Summary for PTPN7 Gene

PTPN7 (Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase, Non-Receptor Type 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Downstream signaling in naive CD8+ T cells and MAPK signaling pathway. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include phosphatase activity and protein tyrosine phosphatase activity. An important paralog of this gene is PTPRR.
