a member of the MPI phosphatase family. Activates the cyclin dependent kinase CDC2 by removing two phosphate groups and it is required for entry into mitosis. Shuttles between the nucleus and the cytoplasm due to nuclear localization and nuclear export signals. The protein is nuclear in the M and G1 phases of the cell cycle and moves to the cytoplasm during S and G2. CDC25B has oncogenic properties, although its role in tumor formation has not been determined. At least four transcript variants for this gene exist. Three splice variant isoforms have been described. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
