Previous GeneCards Identifiers 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 Multiple Sulfatase Deficiency and Metachromatic Leukodystrophy. Among its related pathways are Gamma carboxylation, hypusine formation and arylsulfatase activation and Sphingolipid metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include sulfuric ester hydrolase activity and arylsulfatase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ARSD.
