Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have protein tyrosine phosphatase activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of neuron projection development; peptidyl-tyrosine dephosphorylation; and positive regulation of protein localization to plasma membrane. Localizes to the neuron projection terminus. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; liver; lung; midbrain; and spleen. Orthologous to human PTPN9 (protein tyrosine phosphatase non-receptor type 9).
