PTPRE is a member of the protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTP) family. Members of the PTP family are signaling molecules that regulate a variety of cellular processes including cell growth, differentiation, mitosis, and oncogenic transformation. The PTPRE gene encodes two isoforms, one of which is a receptor-type PTP, and the other which is not a receptor-type PTP. Both isoforms act as negative regulators of FceRI-mediated signal transduction leading to cytokine production and degranulation.

PTPRE was one of numerous potential early detection biomarkers specific to triple-negative breast cancer in multiple pathways identified.
- Development and validation of sandwich ELISA microarrays with minimal assay interference.
- Plasma biomarker profiles differ depending on breast cancer subtype but RANTES is consistently increased.
- Discovery and preliminary confirmation of novel early detection biomarkers for triple-negative breast cancer using preclinical plasma samples from the Women's Health Initiative observational study.
