Mammalian protein serine/threonine phosphatase 2C: cDNA cloning and comparative analysis of amino acid sequences.

Complementary DNA encoding rat protein phosphatase 2C alpha was obtained from a liver library and used to isolate the homologous cDNAs from rabbit liver and human teratocarcinoma libraries. The amino acid sequences of the three enzymes deduced from the cDNA (382 amino acids) were extremely similar (greater than 99% identity), the maximum number of differences (between rat and human) being four. Amino acid sequences of peptides corresponding to 238 residues (61%) of the protein phosphatase 2C beta isoform from rabbit skeletal muscle were determined and showed 12 differences from the recently published sequence of the rat liver enzyme deduced from the cDNA (95% identity).
