Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits phosphoprotein phosphatase activity. Involved in negative regulation of protein phosphorylation; protein dephosphorylation; and regulation of heart growth. Predicted to localize to the cytosol. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypogonadotropic hypogonadism 19 with or without anosmia. Orthologous to human DUSP6 (dual specificity phosphatase 6).
