cerebroside-sulfatase

cer·e·bro·side-sul·fa·tase

, cerebroside sulfatidase
an enzyme that cleaves sulfate from a sulfated glycosphingolipid (such as a cerebroside 3-sulfate).

ARSA

A gene on chromosome 22q13.31-qter that encodes arylsulfatase A, which hydrolyses cerebroside sulfate to cerebroside and sulfate.

Molecular pathology
Defects in ARSA cause metachromatic leukodystrophy.
