Detection of Human LMW-PTP/ACP1 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of CHP‑100 human neuroblastoma cell line and HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line. PVDF Membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat LMW-PTP/ACP1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5075) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for LMW-PTP/ACP1 at approximately 18 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Low molecular weight protein tyrosine phosphatase (LMW-PTP), also known as Acid Phosphatase 1 (ACP1), is an 18 kDa cytosolic phosphatase that is unrelated to other tyrosine phosphatases, such as PTP1B. Tyrosine phosphorylation of LMW-PTP increases its activity 20-fold and affects its ability to dephosphorylate targets such as the PDGF receptor. Cancer cells overexpressing LMW-PTP have a higher proliferative rate and generate tumors that are larger than untransfected controls. Colon adenocarcinomas induced by dimethylhydrazine also have elevated levels of LMW-PTP, suggesting that this phosphatase may be a marker for oncogenic transformation. Human LMW-PTP shares 86% and 87% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat LMW-PTP, respectively.
