PTEN Enzyme

Catalog No.:  E-3000

Description:  N-Terminal GST-Tagged, recombinent human PTEN (Phosphatase and Tensin Homolog), 76kD, purified from E.coli using glutathione-sepharose column

PTEN is a 3-phosphoinositide phosphatase that converts PI(3,4,5)P3 to PI(4,5)P2; thus opposing PKB/Akt activation by PI3-K. PTEN is involved in neuronal stem cell proliferation and self-renewal, cardiac myocyte hypertrophy and contractility, and a wide range of developmental processes. PTEN, however, is best known for its role as a tumor suppressor. Loss of PTEN activity results in accumulation of PI(3,4,5)P3, abnormal activation of PKB/Akt, unregulated cell growth, suppression of apoptosis, and increase tumorigenesis in a number of human tissues. It has also been proposed that PTEN is a candidate for targeted chemotherapy because certain anti-cancer agents preferentially destroy tumors with PTEN mutations. In addition to this direct role in cancer, PTEN also indirectly regulates cancer-associated pathways including VEGF-mediated angiogenesis among others.
