DUSP22 (Dual specificity phosphatase 22)
Dual specificity phosphatase 22 (DUSP22), also known as JNK pathway-associated phosphatase, is involved in the mediation of multiple signaling cascades that are responsible for many different types of signaling, including reaction to stress and inflammation and cell migration. DUSP22 exists at 1-3 more copies in the human genome than in any other primate. The significance of this higher copy number is as of yet unknown.
