Summaries for ARSH Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ARSH Gene

  • Sulfatases, such as ARSH, hydrolyze sulfate esters from sulfated steroids, carbohydrates, proteoglycans, and glycolipids. They are involved in hormone biosynthesis, modulation of cell signaling, and degradation of macromolecules (Sardiello et al., 2005 [PubMed 16174644]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for ARSH Gene

ARSH (Arylsulfatase Family, Member H) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ARSH include mucopolysaccharidoses and x-linked chondrodysplasia punctata. Among its related pathways are Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include sulfuric ester hydrolase activity and arylsulfatase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ARSJ.
