    ..HVH2 mRNA showed an expression pattern distinct from CL100 (human homologue of mouse MKP1) and PAC1, two previously identified MAP kinase phosphatases. Our data suggest a possible role of HVH2 in MAP kinase regulation. ..

    ..We report that a dual specificity phosphatase, Dusp4, is induced by AMPK in AML12, H4IIE, and Fao cells at both mRNA and protein levels...

    ..Interestingly, inhibition of MKP-1 expression by Ro-31-8220 maximally induced activation of JNK but not of p38 and ERK in acutely isolated acini. These effects indicate that JNK may indeed be a preferred MKP-1 substrate in vivo. ..

    ..Thus, I(1)-receptors can abrogate the primary signaling cascade activated by NGF, most likely by increasing levels of a specific phosphatase to return dually phosphorylated ERK to its unphosphorylated state. ..

    ..MKP-2 differed from MKP-1 in its tissue distribution and in its extent of induction by growth factors and agents that induce cellular stress, suggesting that these MKPs may have distinct physiological functions. ..
