Abstract

The protein tyrosine phosphatase 1B (PTP1B) is an important negative regulator of the insulin receptor. Elchebly M. et al showed that PTP1B knockout mice enhanced insulin sensitivity and were completely healthy and resistant to weight gain when put on a high fat diet (1). This makes PTP1B a promising target for diabetes type 2 and metabolic syndrome.
