Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits cell adhesion molecule binding activity; protein tyrosine phosphatase activity; and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cell surface receptor signaling pathway; positive regulation of cytokine production; and regulation of hormone secretion. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the cytoplasm; nucleus; and stress fiber. Used to study several diseases, including LEOPARD syndrome; Noonan syndrome 1; hepatocellular adenoma; intrinsic cardiomyopathy (multiple); and juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in LEOPARD syndrome; Noonan syndrome (multiple); chondroma; juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia; and tetralogy of Fallot. Orthologous to human PTPN11 (protein tyrosine phosphatase non-receptor type 11).
