Mol. Cell. Biol. 26, 4017-4027. Protein phosphatase 2A stabilizes human securin. 2006

Gil-Bernabé, A.M., Romero, F., Limón-Mortés, M.C., and Tortolero, M.

Notes: This study investigated the regulation of human Securin activity and expression. The Serine/Threonine Phosphatase Assay System was used to determine whether PP2A associated with Securin was active. Human Securin was immunoprecipitated from HCT116 cells and PP2A activity measured. This activity was compared to mock preimmune serum from HCT116 cells. The study found increased PP2A activity in the anti-human Securin cell lysates. (3487)

Endocrinology 146, 2692-2698. Src homology-2-containing protein tyrosine phosphatase-1 restrains cell proliferation in human medullary thyroid carcinoma. 2005

Zatelli, M.C., Piccin, D., Tagliati, F., Bottoni, A., Luchin, A., and degli Uberti, E.C.

Notes: This paper reported on a study to determine whether protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs) are involved in the regulation of parafollicular C cell proliferation. The TT cell line, a thyroid medullary carcinoma cell line that contains a mutation in the RET kinase protooncogene, was used for these studies. Cell proliferation in response to treatment with somatostatin in these cells was assessed using the CellTiter® AQueous Non-Radioactive Cell Proliferation Assay. Activity of the PTP SHP-1 in response to somatostatin was measured using the Tyrosine Phosphatase Assay System. (3486)

J. Biol. Chem. 279, 2461-2469. Reactive oxygen species mediate virus-induced STAT activation: Role of tyrosine phosphatases. 2004

Liu, T., Castro, S., Brasier, A.R., Jamaluddin, M., Garofalo, R.P. and Casola, A.

Notes: The Tyrosine Phosphatase Assay System was used to assess the level of tyrosine phosphatase activity in human alveolar type II-like epithelial cells (the A549 cell line). Cell lysates were prepared with RIPA buffer and passed over the Sephadex G25 Column provided in the kit to remove free phosphates. Three micrograms of the purified lysate were used in the assay. Viral infection of A549 cells resulted in  decreased tyrosine phosphatase activity but exposure of the cells to the antioxidant butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) rescued tyrosine phosphatase activity.

J. Bacteriol. 184, 577-583. Streptococcus pneumoniae capsule biosynthesis protein CpsB is a novel manganese-dependent phosphotyrosine-protein phosphatase. 2002

Morona, J.K., Morona, R., Miller, D.C. and Paton, J.C.

Notes: After identification of the genes expressed from the Streptococcus pneumoniae Capsule locus (cps), the authors used the Tyrosine Phosphatase Assay System to further characterize the novel CpsB protein as a tyrosine phosphatase. Pneumococcal cell lysates were produced by French pressing cells in a Tris buffer. The lysates were passed over the Sephadex G25 Column supplied with the system and used directly in tyrosine phosphatase assays.  The addition of manganese was essential for active CpsB protein tyrosine phosphatase activity.  Data are expressed as pmol of free phosphate released.  (3239)
