PTP1B and TCPTP are closely related classical tyrosine-specific protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs). In this review I will highlight their capacity to act specifically and non-redundantly in cellular signaling, describe their roles in insulin signaling and glucose homeostasis, and discuss their potential as drug targets for the enhancement of insulin receptor phosphorylation and insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetes.
