Phosphatase Subfamily Ptp36E
The Ptp36E subfamily is found in ecdysozoa.
Ptp36E has tandem PTPs. The overall sequences are close to PTPRKs. All the other PTPs that have tandem PTP domains are receptor PTPs, but interestingly, we can not detect any transmembrane region from either Drosophila melanogaster or C. elegans sequence using the programs TMHMM and TOPCONS.
The function of the subfamily in either Drosophila melanogaster and C. elegans is unknown.
