Literature associating PTPRC and Merkel cell carcinoma
Protein tyrosine phosphatase, receptor type, C; Protein tyrosine-protein phosphatase required for T-cell activation through the antigen receptor. Acts as a positive regulator of T-cell coactivation upon binding to DPP4. The first PTPase domain has enzymatic activity, while the second one seems to affect the substrate specificity of the first one. Upon T-cell activation, recruits and dephosphorylates SKAP1 and FYN. Dephosphorylates LYN, and thereby modulates LYN activity (By similarity); Belongs to the protein-tyrosine phosphatase family. Receptor class 1/6 subfamily.
Synonyms: PTPRC, E9PKH0, M3ZCP1, M9MMK8, M9MMK9 ...
