			c-Abl is a nonreceptor tyrosine kinase that
			is activated by certain DNA-damaging agents. The
			present studies demonstrate that nuclear
			c-Abl binds constitutively to the protein
			tyrosine phosphatase SHPTP1. Treatment with
			ionizing radiation is associated with
			c-Abl-dependent tyrosine phosphorylation
			of SHPTP1. The results demonstrate that
			the SH3 domain of c-Abl interacts with a
			WPDHGVPSEP motif (residues 417-426) in the
			catalytic domain of SHPTP1 and that c-Abl
			phosphorylates C terminal Y536 and Y564 sites.
			The functional significance of the c-Abl-SHPTP1
			interaction is supported by the demonstration
			that, like c-Abl, SHPTP1 regulates the induction
			of Jun kinase activity following DNA damage.
			These findings indicate that SHPTP1 is involved
			in the response to genotoxic stress through
			a c-Abl-dependent mechanism.
