Summaries for ARSJ Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ARSJ Gene

  • Sulfatases (EC, such as ARSJ, 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 ARSJ Gene

ARSJ (Arylsulfatase Family, Member J) is a Protein Coding gene. 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 ARSA.
