High impact information on PTPRV

  • In silico analysis on public sequence databases reveals a human OST-PTP gene orthologue that encompasses 21 kb on chromosome 1q32 [1].
  • OST-PTP is a transmembrane PTP-ase with a restricted tissue distribution [1].
  • Interestingly, we found two ESTs, from domesticated pig and from cow that exhibit ORF that would predict a functional OST-PTP orthologue in Artiodactyls [1].
  • 1. Using RT-PCR we isolated a 4 kb hOST-PTP transcript. hOST-PTP cDNA sequence exhibits numerous disablements indicating that it does not code for a PTP-ase but is rather a pseudogene with unique features [1].
  • Four plastic chambers, three expanded polystyrene (ESP) products, two multipipe arrangements, and a standard gravel-pipe system were evaluated [2].
