UniProt functional annotation for P18031

UniProt code: P18031.

Organism: Homo sapiens (Human).
Taxonomy: Eukaryota; Metazoa; Chordata; Craniata; Vertebrata; Euteleostomi; Mammalia; Eutheria; Euarchontoglires; Primates; Haplorrhini; Catarrhini; Hominidae; Homo.
Function: Tyrosine-protein phosphatase which acts as a regulator of endoplasmic reticulum unfolded protein response. Mediates dephosphorylation of EIF2AK3/PERK; inactivating the protein kinase activity of EIF2AK3/PERK. May play an important role in CKII- and p60c-src-induced signal transduction cascades. May regulate the EFNA5-EPHA3 signaling pathway which modulates cell reorganization and cell-cell repulsion. May also regulate the hepatocyte growth factor receptor signaling pathway through dephosphorylation of MET.
Catalytic activity: Protein tyrosine phosphate + H(2)O = protein tyrosine + phosphate.
Subunit: Interacts with EPHA3 (phosphorylated); dephosphorylates EPHA3 and may regulate its trafficking and function. Interacts with MET.
Subcellular location: Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side. Note=Interacts with EPHA3 at the cell membrane.
Ptm: Oxidized on Cys-215; the Cys-SOH formed in response to redox signaling reacts with the alpha-amido of the following residue to form a sulfenamide cross-link, triggering a conformational change that inhibits substrate binding and activity. The active site can be restored by reduction.
Ptm: Ser-50 is the major site of phosphorylation as compared to Ser-242 and Ser-243. Activated by phosphorylation at Ser-50.
Ptm: S-nitrosylation of Cys-215 inactivates the enzyme activity.
Ptm: Sulfhydration at Cys-215 following endoplasmic reticulum stress inactivates the enzyme activity, promoting EIF2AK3/PERK activity.
Similarity: Belongs to the protein-tyrosine phosphatase family. Non-receptor class 1 subfamily.
Similarity: Contains 1 tyrosine-protein phosphatase domain.
