From NCBI Gene:
This gene encodes a member of the non-receptor type protein-tyrosine phosphatase family. The encoded protein may be involved in the regulation of small nuclear ribonucleo protein assembly and pre-mRNA splicing by modifying the survival motor neuron (SMN) complex. The encoded protein additionally plays a role in ciliogenesis and is part of endosomal sorting complex required for transport (ESCRT) pathways. This gene may serve a tumor suppressor function.

Plays a role in sorting of endocytic ubiquitinated cargos into multivesicular bodies (MVBs) via its interaction with the ESCRT-I complex (endosomal sorting complex required for transport I), and possibly also other ESCRT complexes (PubMed:18434552, PubMed:21757351). May act as a negative regulator of Ras-mediated mitogenic activity (PubMed:18434552). Plays a role in ciliogenesis (PubMed:20393563).
