SHP2 (PTP1D, SH-PTP2, or Syp) is a widely expressed protein-tyrosine phosphatase (PTP) that maintains phosphotyrosine homeostasis during growth factor, cytokine, hormone and antigen receptor signaling. This phosphatase contains two N-terminal SH2 domains and a C-terminal phosphatase domain. SHP2 associates with EGF and PDGF growth factor receptors and is activated after stimulation of these receptors. Activation of SHP-2 and its association with Gab1 is critical for sustained ERK activation downstream of both growth factor and cytokine receptors. In addition to its role in Gab1-mediated Erk activation, SHP-2 attenuates EGF-dependent PI3 kinase activation by dephosphorylating Gab1 p85 binding sites. Thus, SHP2 is critical for maintaining phosphotyrosine homeostasis in many cell signaling pathways.

Western blot analysis of adult mouse brain. The blot was probed with anti-SHP2 (N-terminal) antibody at 1:250 (lane 1), 1:500 (lane 2), 1:1000 (lane 3), and 1:2000 (lane 4).

Clone (M163) was generated from a recombinant protein containing amino acids in the N-terminal region of human SHP2. This sequence is highly conserved in rat and mouse SHP2.
