PTP1B is a nonreceptor type protein tyrosine phosphatase that has essential roles in insulin and leptin signaling, as well as important functions in growth factor and integrin signaling. The structure of PTP1B includes a conserved phosphatase domain, C-terminal hydrophobic residues for targeting to the cytoplasmic face of the endoplasmic reticulum, and proline-rich regions characteristic of SH3 domain binding motifs. PTP1B can interact with N-Cadherin and dephosphorylate β-catenin associated with cadherin complexes. PTP1B also interacts with Insulin and EGF receptors, and undergoes phosphorylation after receptor stimulation. Tyrosine phosphorylation at Tyr-66, Tyr-152, and Tyr-153 occurs after insulin receptor activation, and tyrosine phosphorylation of Tyr-152 may be required for interactions with N-Cadherin. In addition, Akt can phosphorylate Ser-50 and this phosphorylation can reduce PTP1B activity.

Western blot image of human Jurkat cells untreated (lanes 1 & 3) or treated (lanes 2 & 4) with calyculin A (100 nM for 30 min.). The blots were probed with mouse monoclonal anti-PTP1B (lanes 1 & 2) or rabbit polyclonal anti-PTP1B (Ser-50) (lanes 3 & 4).

Immunocytochemical labeling of PTP1B in aldehyde-fixed and NP-40 permeabilized human NCI-H1915 lung carcinoma cells. The cells were labeled with rabbit polyclonal anti-PTP1B (Ser-50) (PP2411) phosphospecific antibody. The antibody was detected using appropriate secondary antibody conjugated to DyLight® 594.

PTP1B (Ser-50) synthetic peptide (coupled to carrier protein) corresponds to amino acids surrounding Ser-50 in human PTP1B. This sequence has significant homology to the conserved site in rat and mouse PTP1B, and has homology to conserved sites in TC-PTP and MPTP, but not other protein tyrosine phosphatase family members.

This antibody was affinity purified with phospho-PTP1B (Ser-50) peptide. The purified antibody detects a 50 kDa* doublet corresponding to PTP1B in western blots of calyculin A treated human A431 and Jurkat cells. This reactivity is observed as a weak singlet in control cells and is not observed after lambda phosphatase treatment.

*All molecular weights (MW) are confirmed by comparison to Bio-Rad Rainbow Markers and to western blot mobilities of known proteins with similar MW.
