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 Metabolism of proteins and Gamma carboxylation, hypusine formation and arylsulfatase activation. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include sulfuric ester hydrolase activity and arylsulfatase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ARSI.
