Activation of Hydrogen Peroxide to Peroxytetradecanoic Acid Is Responsible for Potent Inhibition of Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase CD45


Hydrogen peroxide induces oxidation and consequently inactivation of many protein tyrosine phosphatases. It was found that hydrogen peroxide, in the presence of carboxylic acids, was efficiently activated to form even more potent oxidant - peroxy acid. We have found that peroxytetradecanoic acid decreases the enzymatic activity of CD45 phosphatase… (More)
