24548998 results suggest that AK2 is an associated activator of DUSP26 and suppresses cell proliferation by FADD dephosphorylation, postulating AK2 as a negative regulator of tumour growth.
23298255 The study reports the 1.68 A crystal structure of a catalytically inactive mutant (Cys152Ser) of DUSP26 lacking the first 60 N-terminal residues (DeltaN60-C/S-DUSP26).
20877624 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20562916 DUSP26 functions as a p53 phosphatase
20347885 DUSP26 may function as a tumour suppressor in particular cancers.
19043453 Downregulation of Dusp26 may contribute to malignant phenotypes of glioma.
16924234 DUSP26 effectively dephosphorylates p38 and has a little effect on extracellular signal-regulated kinase in anaplastic thyroid cancer.
