Background: Protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) is a divalent cation-independent protein serine/threonine phosphatase involved in regulating numerous cellular processes including the cell cycle, growth and differentiation. Physiological targets of PP2A include cell surface receptors and ion channels, protein kinases involved in mitogenic signaling and the cell cycle, key regulatory enzymes and proteins involved in metabolism, as well as numerous transcription factors. The phosphatase has been implicated as a growth suppressor. It is inhibited potently by tumor promoters such as okadaic acid and by I1PP2A (GLO140-001, GLO144-001, GLO144-005) and I2PP2A (GLO141-001, GLO145-001, GLO145-005), two naturally-occurring cancer-associated cellular proteins. Additionally, the SV40 small t antigen replaces the B subunit during viral transformation and subverts the physiological function of a subset of PP2A complexes in a substrate selective manner.
Protein Phosphatase 2A2 (PP2A2) is a dimeric form of PP2A which lacks the B subunit present in PP2A1 (GLO130-001, GLO130-005). GloboZymes PP2A2 preparations are useful for the study of enzyme kinetics and regulation, to dephosphorylate target substrates and to evaluate the effects of test substances on the activity of the phosphatase. The preparations can also be used for determining the role of the missing B subunit of the enzyme.
