Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have protein tyrosine phosphatase activity. Involved in insulin receptor signaling pathway; modulation of chemical synaptic transmission; and protein phosphorylation. Localizes to the Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse and integral component of synaptic membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including adrenal gland; central nervous system; decidua; extraembryonic component; and future brain. Orthologous to human PTPRA (protein tyrosine phosphatase receptor type A).
