Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SUMF1 Gene
This gene encodes an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of sulfate esters by oxidizing a cysteine residue in the substrate sulfatase to an active site 3-oxoalanine residue, which is also known as C-alpha-formylglycine. Mutations in this gene cause multiple sulfatase deficiency, a lysosomal storage disorder. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009]
GeneCards Summary for SUMF1 Gene
SUMF1 (Sulfatase Modifying Factor 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SUMF1 include Multiple Sulfatase Deficiency and Metachromatic Leukodystrophy. Among its related pathways are Sphingolipid metabolism and Gamma carboxylation, hypusine formation and arylsulfatase activation. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and oxidoreductase activity. An important paralog of this gene is SUMF2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SUMF1 Gene
Using molecular oxygen and an unidentified reducing agent, oxidizes a cysteine residue in the substrate sulfatase to an active site 3-oxoalanine residue, which is also called C(alpha)-formylglycine. Known substrates include GALNS, ARSA, STS and ARSE.
