GeneID: 423


Common Name: DUSP5 Type: Gene
Chromosome: 10 (NC_000010.11) Locus: NM_004419.4 (DUSP5)
HUGO Symbol: DUSP5 Full Name: dual specificity phosphatase 5
Exons: 4 Introns: 3

The protein encoded by the DUSP5 gene is a member of the dual-specificity protein phosphatase (DUSP) family. These phosphatases are characterized by their ability to dephosphorylate both tyrosine and serine/threonine residues, thus inactivating their target kinases. DUSP5 belongs to a class of DUSPs, designated MKPs, that dephosphorylate MAPK (mitogen-activated protein kinase) proteins ERK, JNK, and p38 with specificity distinct from that of individual MKP proteins. The MAP kinase signaling pathway plays a key role in the regulation of erythropoiesis. Ineffective erythropoiesis due to intramedullary apoptosis and delayed maturation of erythroid progenitor cells is the hallmark of beta-thalassaemia. A significant change in the expression of the DUSP5 gene has been reported in patients with beta-thalassaemia, thus implicating DUSP5 in the pathogenesis of beta-thalassaemia, likely through the MAP kinase pathway.

Synonyms: DUSP , HVH3
