Summaries for ARSH Gene

Entrez Gene Summary 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 Mucopolysaccharidosis, Type Vi and Multiple Sulfatase Deficiency. Among its related pathways are Sphingolipid metabolism and 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.
