25998184 The results of this study, combined with previous studies, suggested that therapeutic intervention to increase the expression or activity of DUSP9 may enable the activation of anti-proliferation signals in malignant cells.
24838152 A possible use for DUSP9 as CIMP marker.
23276385 DUSP9 protein levels were markedly suppressed in severe pre-eclampsia, but not in severe IUGR. This suppression might be attributable to the prolonged hypoxic conditions found in pre-eclampsia.
23029454 The DUSP9 locus is a common susceptibility locus for type 2 diabetes across different ethnicities, and 6 loci identified in South Asian genome-wide association studies also have significant effect on susceptibility to Japanese type 2 diabetes.
21943117 decreased expression of DUSP-9 is associated with poor prognosis in ccRCC.
21908610 DUSP9/MKP-4 is a bona fide target of PKA signaling and attenuation of DUSP9/MKP-4 function can mediate cross-talk between the PKA pathway and MAPK signaling through both ERK1/2 and p38alpha in vivo
21206059 2.7 A resolution crystal structure of the catalytic domain of MKP-4 (MKP-4C) is presented
18006813 microtubule disruption by MKP4 provides a novel mechanism for tumor suppression by a cytosolic MKP
