Regulation and function of a novel protein tyrosine phosphatase

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

A cell's ability to respond to its extracellular environment involves a complex and highly organised series of events referred to as cellular signalling. These signalling processes regulate fundamental cellular processes that underlie the growth and development of all living organisms. This proposal focuses on a group of enzymes known as the protein tyrosine phosphatases and their ability to regulate tyrosine phosphorylation-dependent signalling. We have identified a novel human protein tyrosine phosphatase and we aim to characterise its regulation and biological function.
