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.
