DUSP7 Dual specificity protein phosphatase. Shows high activity towards MAPK1/ERK2. Also has lower activity towards MAPK14 and MAPK8. In arrested oocytes, plays a role in meiotic resumption. Promotes nuclear envelope breakdown and activation of the CDK1/Cyclin-B complex in oocytes, probably by dephosphorylating and inactivating the conventional protein kinase C (cPKC) isozyme PRKCB. May also inactivate PRKCA and/or PRKCG. Also important in oocytes for normal chromosome alignment on the metaphase plate and progression to anaphase, where it might regulate activity of the spindle-assembly checkpoint (SAC) complex. Belongs to the protein-tyrosine phosphatase family. Non-receptor class dual specificity subfamily. Strongly expressed in liver (PubMed:8670865). Expressed at significantly higher levels in malignant hematopoietic cells than in corresponding non-malignant cells (PubMed:14576828). 2 human isoforms generated by alternative promoter usage have been reported.
