Receptor protein-tyrosine phosphatase that mediates homotypic cell-cell interactions and plays a role in adipogenic differentiation via modulation of p120 catenin/CTNND1 phosphorylation (PubMed:10753936, PubMed:17761881). Promotes CTNND1 dephosphorylation and prevents its cytoplasmic localization where it inhibits SLC2A4 membrane trafficking. In turn, SLC2A4 is directed to the plasma membrane and performs its glucose transporter function (PubMed:21998202). {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10753936, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16456543, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17761881, ECO:0000269|PubMed:21998202}.
