We have isolated a mouse cDNA of 5.7 kb, encoding a new member of the family of receptor-like protein tyrosine phosphatases, termed mRPTP mu. The cDNA predicts a protein of 1432 amino acids (not including signal peptide) with a calculated Mr of 161,636. In addition, we have cloned the human homologue, hRPTP mu, which shows 98.7% amino acid identity to mRPTP(More)
Receptor-like protein tyrosine phosphatases (receptor-PTPs) represent a novel family of transmembrane proteins that are thought to play important roles in cellular regulation. They consist of a cytoplasmic catalytic region, a single transmembrane segment and an extracellular, putative ligand-binding domain, but the nature of their physiological ligands is(More)
The G protein-linked receptor for neurokinin A (NKA) couples to stimulation of phospholipase C and, in some cells, adenylyl cyclase. We have examined the function of the C-terminal cytoplasmic domain in receptor signaling and desensitization. We constructed C-terminal deletion mutants of the human NK-2 receptor (epitope tagged) to remove potential Ser/Thr(More)
We have used the neurokinin NK-2 receptor as a model to examine how receptor desensitization affects cellular responses. The liganded receptor transiently activates phospholipase C (PLC) and is rapidly phosphorylated on Ser/Thr residues in its C-terminal domain. Mutant receptors lacking this domain mediate persistent activation of PLC. We now show that, in(More)
RPTP mu is a recently described receptor-like protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTP), the ectodomain of which mediates homophilic cell-cell adhesion. The cytoplasmic part contains two homologous PTP-like domains and a juxtamembrane region that is about twice as large as in other receptor-like PTPs. The entire 80-kDa cytoplasmic part of human RPTP mu was(More)
RPTPmu is a receptor-like protein-tyrosine phosphatase (RPTP) whose ectodomain mediates homotypic cell-cell interactions. The intracellular part of RPTPmu contains a relatively long juxtamembrane domain (158 amino acids; aa) and two conserved phosphatase domains (C1 and C2). The membrane-proximal C1 domain is responsible for the catalytic activity of(More)
The Telecommunication Engineering group at the University of Twente is currently working on two projects about phased array antenna systems with photonic beam-formers. One is the SMart Antenna systems for Radio Transceivers (SMART) project. The other is the Broadband Photonic Beamformer project. Some of the advantages of implementing the beam forming(More)
