Schematic representation of MK-STYX. MK-STYX has dual specificity (DSP) and CH2 (cdc 25 homology) domains. An active DSP domain would dephosphorylate phosphoserine/threonine/tyrosine residues. MK-STYX is catalytically inactive due to the absence of two amino acids within in the DSP domain that are essential for phosphatase activity. However, MK-STYX has the ability to bind phosphorylated proteins. The CH2 domain, also known as the Rhodanese domain, binds mitogen activated kinases in MK-STYX active homologs.
