Src-Homology 2 domain Phosphatase-1 (SHP-1), also known as Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase 1C (PTP1C), PTPN6, and Hematopoetic Cell Phosphatase (HCPH), is an enzyme that selectively dephosphorylates tyrosine residues in proteins. Spontaneous point mutations in the SHP-1 gene in mice produce the “motheaten” and motheaten viable” phenotypes that are severely autoimmune and immunodeficient.1 The enzyme is highly expressed in leukocyte cell types.2 SHP-1 has a regulatory region containing two Src homology 2 (SH2) domains that are critical for its binding to ITIM domains in inhibitory immunoreceptors.3 Deletion of the SH2 domains, as in this product, causes a marked increase in phosphatase activity.4 SHP-1 will dephosphorylate a wide variety of proteins, including the EGF receptor.5 A phosphopeptide containing the EGFR (Y992) sequence can be used to measure the activity of SHP-1 by detecting the release of phosphate.
