Quality Control

The theoretical molecular weight of the GST-SHP-1 fusion protein is 92 kDa. The purified phosphatase was quality controlled for purity using SDS-PAGE followed by Coomassie stain [Fig.1]. SHP-1 phosphatase activity was determined using a DELFIA® assay [Fig.2].

Source / Purification

The GST-phosphatase fusion protein was produced by expressing recombinant human SHP-1 (Met1-Lys597) (GenBank Accession No. NM_080548) with an amino-terminal GST tag in E. coli. The protein was purified by one-step affinity chromatography using glutathione-agarose.


SHP-1 (PTPN6) is a non-receptor protein tyrosine phosphatase that is expressed primarily in hematopoietic cells. The enzyme is composed of two SH2 domains, a tyrosine phosphatase catalytic domain, and a carboxy-terminal regulatory domain (1). SHP-1 removes phosphates from target proteins to downregulate several tyrosine kinase-regulated pathways. In hematopoietic cells, the amino-terminal SH2 domain of SHP-1 binds to tyrosine phosphorylated erythropoietin receptors (EpoR) to negatively regulate hematopoietic growth (2). Overexpression of SHP-1 in epithelial cells results in dephosphorylation of the Ros receptor tyrosine kinase and subsequent downregulation of Ros-dependent cell proliferation and transformation (3). Following ligand binding in myeloid cells, SHP-1 associates with the IL-3R β chain and downregulates IL-3-induced tyrosine phosphorylation and cell proliferation (4). Because SHP-1 downregulates various proliferation pathways, SHP-1 is considered a potential tumor suppressor and angiogenesis regulator (5,6).
