Protein tyrosine phosphatase alpha (PTPα) functions as an activator of Src by dephosphorylating Tyr527/530, a critical negative regulatory site. The increase of PTPα catalytic activity requires its phosphorylation at Ser180 and/or Ser204 and its dissociation from PTPα/Grb2 complex. Here, we show that epidermal growth factor (EGF) stimulation increases the ability ...
