UniProt functional annotation for Q12923

UniProt code: Q12923.

Organism: Homo sapiens (Human).
Taxonomy: Eukaryota; Metazoa; Chordata; Craniata; Vertebrata; Euteleostomi; Mammalia; Eutheria; Euarchontoglires; Primates; Haplorrhini; Catarrhini; Hominidae; Homo.
Function: Tyrosine phosphatase which regulates negatively FAS- induced apoptosis and NGFR-mediated pro-apoptotic signaling.
Catalytic activity: Protein tyrosine phosphate + H(2)O = protein tyrosine + phosphate.
Subunit: Interacts with TRIP6 and TNFRSF6 (Fas receptor) through its second PDZ domain. Interacts with the C-terminal SVP motif of NGFR through its third PDZ domain. Interacts with the LIM domain of PDLIM4 through its second and fourth PDZ domains. Binds PLEKHA1 and PLEKHA2 through its first PDZ domain. Interacts with BRD7 and ARHGAP29. Interacts (via PDZ 3 domain) with PKN2 (via C-terminus).
Subcellular location: Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton (By similarity). Nucleus. Cell projection, lamellipodium. Note=Colocalizes with PKN2 in lamellipodia-like structure, regions of large actin turnover.
Tissue specificity: Present in most tissues with the exception of the liver and skeletal muscle. Most abundant in lung, kidney and fetal brain.
Similarity: Belongs to the protein-tyrosine phosphatase family. Non-receptor class subfamily.
Similarity: Contains 1 FERM domain.
Similarity: Contains 1 KIND domain.
Similarity: Contains 5 PDZ (DHR) domains.
Similarity: Contains 1 tyrosine-protein phosphatase domain.
Sequence caution: Sequence=AAH39610.1; Type=Miscellaneous discrepancy; Note=Contaminating sequence. Potential poly-A sequence;
