Dual specificity phosphatase 15
VHY, VH1-related member Y, DUSP15
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the non-receptor class of the protein-tyrosine phosphatase family. The encoded protein has both protein-tyrosine phophatase activity and serine/threonine-specific phosphatase activity, and therefore is known as a dual specificity phosphatase. Three transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from

The smallest active protein-tyrosine phosphatase yet (only 16 kDa) is described here and given the name VHZ for VH1-like member Z because it belongs to the group of small Vaccinia virus VH1-related dual specific phosphatases exemplified by VHR, VHX, and VHY.
