Technical Data
ACP1 (Low Molecular Weight Phosphotyrosine Protein Phosphatase, LMW-PTP, LMW-PTPase, Adipocyte Acid Phosphatase, Low Molecular Weight Cytosolic Acid Phosphatase, Red Cell Acid Phosphatase 1)
Low molecular weight protein tyrosine phosphatase (LMW-PTP), also known as Acid Phosphatase 1 (ACP1), is an 18kD cytosolic phosphatase that is unrelated to other tyrosine phosphatases, such as PTP1B. Tyrosine phosphorylation of LMW-PTP increases its activity 20-fold and affects its ability to dephosphorylate targets such as the PDGF receptor. Cancer cells overexpressing LMW-PTP have a higher proliferative rate and generate tumors that are larger than untransfected controls. Colon adenocarcinomas induced by dimethylhydrazine also have elevated levels of LMW-PTP, suggesting that this phosphatase may be a marker for oncogenic transformation.

Suitable for use in Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
