In enzymology, a phosphoserine phosphatase (EC is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

O-phospho-L(or D)-serine + H2O <math>\rightleftharpoons</math> L(or D)-serine + phosphate

The 3 substrates of this enzyme are O-phospho-L-serine, O-phospho-D-serine, and H2O, whereas its 3 products are L-serine, D-serine, and phosphate.

This enzyme belongs to the family of hydrolases, specifically those acting on phosphoric monoester bonds. The systematic name of this enzyme class is O-phosphoserine phosphohydrolase. This enzyme participates in glycine, serine and threonine metabolism.
