PRL-2, also known as Protein tyrosine phosphatase 4a2 (Ptp4a2) is a unique nuclear protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTP) that plays a central role in regulating diverse cellular processes. PRL-1 is induced in mitogen-stimulated cells and regenerating liver. PRL-2 exhibits 87% identity to PRL-1 in their amino acid sequences. All mouse PRL proteins contain a C-terminal consensus sequence for prenylation. All PRL proteins bear significant sequence homology to Cdc14p and the tumor suppressor PTEN/MMAC1. PRL-2 is preferentially expressed in skeletal muscle. PRL-2 is also expressed at lower levels in other tissues.
