  • FunctionRegulates mitogenic signal transduction by dephosphorylating both Thr and Tyr residues on MAP kinases ERK1 and ERK2.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein-tyrosine phosphatase family. Non-receptor class dual specificity subfamily.
    Contains 1 rhodanese domain.
    Contains 1 tyrosine-protein phosphatase domain.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylation in the C-terminus by ERK1/2 inhibits proteasomal degradation and stabilizes the protein.
