Summaries for ARSB Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ARSB Gene

  • Arylsulfatase B encoded by this gene belongs to the sulfatase family. The arylsulfatase B homodimer hydrolyzes sulfate groups of N-Acetyl-D-galactosamine, chondriotin sulfate, and dermatan sulfate. The protein is targeted to the lysozyme. Mucopolysaccharidosis type VI is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disorder resulting from a deficiency of arylsulfatase B. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2016]

GeneCards Summary for ARSB Gene

ARSB (Arylsulfatase B) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ARSB include Mucopolysaccharidosis Type Vi and Mucopolysaccharidosis Type 6, Slowly Progressing. Among its related pathways are Glycosaminoglycan degradation and Metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include sulfuric ester hydrolase activity and N-acetylgalactosamine-4-sulfatase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ARSJ.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ARSB Gene

  • Removes sulfate groups from chondroitin-4-sulfate (C4S) and regulates its degradation (PubMed:19306108). Involved in the regulation of cell adhesion, cell migration and invasion in colonic epithelium (PubMed:19306108). In the central nervous system, is a regulator of neurite outgrowth and neuronal plasticity, acting through the control of sulfate glycosaminoglycans and neurocan levels (By similarity).

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 6 (MPS6) [MIM:253200]: An autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease characterized by intracellular accumulation of dermatan sulfate. Clinical features can include abnormal growth, short stature, stiff joints, skeletal malformations, corneal clouding, hepatosplenomegaly, and cardiac abnormalities. A wide variation in clinical severity is observed. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10036316, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10738004, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11802522, ECO:0000269 PubMed:14974081, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1550123, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1718978, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19259130, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8116615, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8125475, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8541342, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8651289}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Multiple sulfatase deficiency (MSD) [MIM:272200]: A clinically and biochemically heterogeneous disorder caused by the simultaneous impairment of all sulfatases, due to defective post-translational modification and activation. It combines features of individual sulfatase deficiencies such as metachromatic leukodystrophy, mucopolysaccharidosis, chondrodysplasia punctata, hydrocephalus, ichthyosis, neurologic deterioration and developmental delay. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15146462}. Note=The protein represented in this entry is involved in disease pathogenesis. Arylsulfatase B activity is impaired in multiple sulfatase deficiency due to mutations in SUMF1. SUMF1 mutations result in defective post-translational modification of ARSB at residue Cys-91 that is not converted to 3-oxoalanine.
