Phosphatase Classification: Fold CC1: Superfamily CC1: Family PTP: Subfamily NvecPTP-sf2

NvecPTP-sf2 is a receptor tyrosine phosphatase subfamily first seen in the sea anemone, Nematostella


NvecPTP-sf2 is found in Cnidarians, including 13 members in Nematostella vectensis, and EST evidence in some other cnidarians. This subfamily may be related to the chordate PTPRK subfamily and several other unclassified phosphatases in invertebrares.


Most members are fragments that are consistent with the domain structure of the longest form: an N-terminal Ig domain followed by 6 FN3 domains and a pair of PTP phosphatase domains.


NvecPTP-sf2 is known only from sequence databases and has no known function.
