Abstract

Voltage-gated sodium channels in brain neurons were found to associate with receptor protein tyrosine phosphatase beta (RPTPbeta) and its catalytically inactive, secreted isoform phosphacan, and this interaction was regulated during development. Both the extracellular domain and the intracellular catalytic domain of RPTPbeta interacted with sodium channels. Sodium channels were tyrosine phosphorylated and were modulated by the associated catalytic domains of RPTPbeta. Dephosphorylation slowed sodium channel inactivation, positively shifted its voltage dependence, and increased whole-cell sodium current. Our results define a sodium channel signaling complex containing RPTPbeta, which acts to regulate sodium channel modulation by tyrosine phosphorylation.
