SHP family protein tyrosine phosphatases adopt canonical active-site conformations in the apo and phosphate-bound states.


Protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTP) catalytic domains undergo a series of conformational changes in order to mediate dephosphorylation of their tyrosine phosphorylated substrates. An important conformational change occurs in the Tryptophan-Proline-Aspartic acid (WPD) loop, which contains the conserved catalytic aspartate. Upon substrate binding, the WPD loop… (More)
