Abstract

Protein tyrosine phosphatase interacting protein 51 (PTPIP51) interacts both in vitro and in vivo with PTP1B, a protein tyrosine phosphatase involved in cellular regulation. PTPIP51 is known to be expressed in many different types of tissues. It is involved in cellular processes such as proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis. Nevertheless, the exact cellular function of PTPIP51 is still unknown. The present review summarizes our current knowledge of the PTPIP51 gene and its mRNA and protein structure.

This paper is dedicated to Prof. Dr. Drs. mult. h.c. Andreas Oksche on the occasion of his 85th birthday.
