Gene: DUSP4 (dual specificity phosphatase 4) Homo sapiens
Symbol: DUSP4
Name: dual specificity phosphatase 4
Description: Exhibits MAP kinase serine/threonine phosphatase activity; protein tyrosine phosphatase activity; and protein tyrosine/threonine phosphatase activity. Involved in negative regulation of MAPK cascade and protein dephosphorylation. Localizes to the nucleoplasm.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: dual specificity protein phosphatase 4; dual specificity protein phosphatase hVH2; HVH2; MAP kinase phosphatase 2; mitogen-activated protein kinase phosphatase 2; MKP-2; MKP2; serine/threonine specific protein phosphatase; TYP; VH1 homologous phosphatase 2
