LMWPTP (Low Molecular Weight Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase; also Red cell acid phosphatase 1/ACP1, HCPTP, and HAAP/Adipocyte acid phosphatase) is a 1718kD member of the LMWPTP family, PTP superfamily of enzymes. It is widely expressed, being found in cells diverse as B and T cells, endothelial cells and vascular smooth muscle cells. LMWPTP dephosphorylates multiple substrates, often in a celldependent manner. Among the substrates for LMWPTP include PDGR beta, EphA2 and betacatenin. PMWPTP is found intracellularly, generally associated with two cytoplasmic pools, one in the cytosol and the other accompaning the cytoskeleton. Human LMWPTP is 158 amino acids (aa) in length. The catalytic region spans aa9154, and there are two acetylation sites at Ala2 and Lys156. Phosphorylation on Tyr132 and Tyr133 occurs on cytoskeletonassociated LMWPTP, and has the effect of increasing its phosphatase activity. There are three alternative splice variants reported for LMWPTP. One shows a 34aa substitution for aa4174, a second shows a deletion of aa4174, while a third contains a 35aa substitution for aa78158. The last two isoforms may function a negative regulators of LMWPTP activity. Fulllength LMWPTP shares 86% aa sequence identity with mouse LMWPTP.Applications: Suitable for use in Western Blot.
