A subcategory of protein tyrosine phosphatases that are bound to the cell membrane. They contain cytoplasmic tyrosine phosphatase domains and extracellular protein domains that may play a role in cell-cell interactions by interacting with EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX components. They are considered receptor-like proteins in that they appear to lack specific ligands.
Also Known As:
Protein Tyrosine Phosphatases, Receptor-Like; Protein Tyrosine Phosphatases, Receptor Like; Receptor Like Protein Tyrosine Phosphatases
