Gene: DUSP21 (dual specificity phosphatase 21) Homo sapiens
Symbol: DUSP21
Name: dual specificity phosphatase 21
Description: This gene encodes a member of the dual specificity phosphatase family, specifically the low molecular weight dual specificity phosphatase family. The encoded protein localizes to both the cytoplasm and the nucleus and functions to remove phosphate groups from phosphotyrosine and phosphothreonine residues.[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: BJ-HCC-26 tumor antigen; dual specificity protein phosphatase 21; LMW-DSP21; LMWDSP21; low molecular weight dual specificity phosphatase 21; MGC149878
