This redox-based probe is ideal for targeting reversible protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTP) oxidation. The probe consists of:
Protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs) are characterized by a catalytic domain that contains an invariant catalytic cysteine with a conserved signature motif (His-Cys-(X)5-Arg-(Ser/Thr)). Owing to its unique environment, the catalytic cysteine has a low pKa (~5.5) and exists predominantly as a thiolate anion at physiological pH, which enhances its nucleophilicity, but also renders it susceptible to oxidation by reactive oxygen species (ROS), which promotes phosphorylation dependent signaling cascades.

Analysis of BiPhAz-1 and NAPhAz-1 selectivity for oxidized PTP YopH. BiPhAz-1(compound 6) and NAPhAz-1 (compound 5) detect sulfenic acid in oxidized YopH with increased sensitivity over the parent compound DAz-1. YopH was oxidized with H2O2 and incubated with compounds 28 or DMSO alone (). Left: Following p-biotin conjugation, reactions were analyzed by streptavidin-HRP western blot. Right: Equal loading was verified by Ponceau S staining.
