Entrez Gene Summary for DUSP7 Gene

  • Dual-specificity phosphatases (DUSPs) constitute a large heterogeneous subgroup of the type I cysteine-based protein-tyrosine phosphatase superfamily. DUSPs are characterized by their ability to dephosphorylate both tyrosine and serine/threonine residues. DUSP7 belongs to a class of DUSPs, designated MKPs, that dephosphorylate MAPK (mitogen-activated protein kinase) proteins ERK (see MIM 601795), JNK (see MIM 601158), and p38 (see MIM 600289) with specificity distinct from that of individual MKP proteins. MKPs contain a highly conserved C-terminal catalytic domain and an N-terminal Cdc25 (see MIM 116947)-like (CH2) domain. MAPK activation cascades mediate various physiologic processes, including cellular proliferation, apoptosis, differentiation, and stress responses (summary by Patterson et al., 2009 [PubMed 19228121]).[supplied by OMIM, Dec 2009]

GeneCards Summary for DUSP7 Gene

DUSP7 (Dual Specificity Phosphatase 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Signaling by FGFR and Signaling by FGFR. 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 DUSP7 Gene

  • Regulates the activity of the MAP kinase family in response to changes in the cellular environment. PYST2-S may act as a negative regulator of PYST2-L although it is unclear whether this is by competing for transcription, translation or activation factors.
