Disease relevance of PPP6C

  • Six monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) against lipopolysaccharides (LPS) from Bordetella pertussis (P1P3, 60.5), B. parapertussis (PP2, PP6, PPB) and B. bronchiseptica (BRg1) were used to examine the presence of antigenic determinants of LPS on B. bronchiseptica cells [1].
  • In particular the neurofilament protein (NFP)68 kDa, PP1 and PP6 showed significant differences of reactivity between pineocytoma, Int-PPT and pineoblastoma, when compared in groups showing extensive positive staining (positive staining in almost all areas of the tumor) [2].
  • In retinoblastomas, PP5 antibody, which reacts with horizontal cells and ganglion cells, and PP6 antibody, which reacts with part of the bipolar cells in the inner nuclear layer, showed intense staining in well-differentiated retinoblastomas, but the intensity of staining and the positivity decreased with the degree of dedifferentiation [3].

Associations of PPP6C with chemical compounds

  • Novel serine/threonine phosphatases--PP4 and PP6 in human cells--have been discovered recently, for which regulatory subunits are yet to be identified [12].
