Disease relevance of PPP2R2C

  • Two T-cell lines were established from peripheral blood mononuclear cells of two Moroccan patients with tropical spastic paraparesis and then named PR52 and PR144 [1].
  • Plantar ulcers are found in feet with foot sole Shore values of 30, a sensation level of 45 mN and PR of 35; for Shore values of 40, sensation levels of 100 mN, with PR 52; and for Shore values above 40, sensation level > 100 mN with PR 58 [2].

High impact information on PPP2R2C

  • The putative protein shares 81 and 85% identity with B1alpha (PPP2R2A) and B1beta (PPP2R2B), respectively, and was named PPP2R2C for its high level of homology to the other two isoforms [3].
  • Molecular cloning and mapping of the brain-abundant B1gamma subunit of protein phosphatase 2A, PPP2R2C, to human chromosome 4p16 [3].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of PPP2R2C

  • In addition, the PPP2R2C gene was localized to human chromosome 4p16 between markers D4S2925 and D4S3007 with 5.45 cR (LOD > 14) and 2.63 cR (LOD > 15) RH distance, respectively, by radiation hybrid panel mapping [3].
