Summaries for DUSP16 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DUSP16 Gene

  • This gene encodes a mitogen-activated protein kinase phosphatase that is a member of the dual specificity protein phosphatase subfamily. These phosphatases inactivate their target kinases by dephosphorylating both the phosphoserine/threonine and phosphotyrosine residues. The encoded protein specifically regulates the c-Jun amino-terminal kinase (JNK) and extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) pathways.[provided by RefSeq, May 2010]

GeneCards Summary for DUSP16 Gene

DUSP16 (Dual Specificity Phosphatase 16) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are MAPK signaling pathway and TGF-Beta Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include protein tyrosine phosphatase activity and MAP kinase tyrosine/serine/threonine phosphatase activity. An important paralog of this gene is SSH1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DUSP16 Gene

  • Dual specificity protein phosphatase involved in the inactivation of MAP kinases. Dephosphorylates MAPK10 bound to ARRB2.
