Summaries for DUSP1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DUSP1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a phosphatase with dual specificity for tyrosine and threonine. The encoded protein can dephosphorylate MAP kinase MAPK1/ERK2, which results in its involvement in several cellular processes. This protein appears to play an important role in the human cellular response to environmental stress as well as in the negative regulation of cellular proliferation. Finally, the encoded protein can make some solid tumors resistant to both chemotherapy and radiotherapy, making it a target for cancer therapy. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2017]

GeneCards Summary for DUSP1 Gene

DUSP1 (Dual Specificity Phosphatase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DUSP1 include Multiple Cranial Nerve Palsy and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 9. Among its related pathways are RET signaling and RAF-independent MAPK1/3 activation. GO annotations related to this gene include phosphatase activity and protein tyrosine/serine/threonine phosphatase activity. An important paralog of this gene is DUSP4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DUSP1 Gene

  • Dual specificity phosphatase that dephosphorylates MAP kinase MAPK1/ERK2 on both Thr-183 and Tyr-185, regulating its activity during the meiotic cell cycle.
