Summaries for ARSI Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ARSI Gene

  • Sulfatases (EC, such as ARSI, 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 ARSI Gene

ARSI (Arylsulfatase Family, Member I) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ARSI include autosomal recessive spastic paraplegia type 66 and xerophthalmia. Among its related pathways are PTM- gamma carboxylation, hypusine formation and arylsulfatase activation and PTM- gamma carboxylation, hypusine formation and arylsulfatase activation. GO annotations related to this gene include arylsulfatase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ARSJ.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ARSI Gene

  • Displays arylsulfatase activity at neutral pH, when co-expressed with SUMF1; arylsulfatase activity is measured in the secretion medium of retinal cell line, but no activity is recorded when measured in cell extracts.
