arylsulfatase


Also found in: Wikipedia.

ar·yl·sul·fa·tase

(ar'il-sŭl'fă-tās),
An enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of phenol sulfates, including cerebroside sulfates (that is, a phenol sulfate + H2O → a phenol + sulfate anion). Some arylsulfatases are inhibited by sulfate (type II) and some are not (type I).
Synonym(s): sulfatase (2)

A first biomarker study sponsored by Inventiva showed that, despite ERT treatment, the current standard of care, leukoGAG levels remained very high and were not impacted when measured one hour after ERT infusion although the activity of the arylsulfatase B[sup.2] enzyme was very high.
The soil samples collected on day 25 and 50 of the experiment were tested for activity of five enzymes: arylsulfatase, dehydrogenases, catalase, urease, acid phosphatase, and alkaline phosphatase.

The laboratory findings of patients with ML III involve the abundance of some lysosomal enzymes in plasma including arylsulfatase. Genetic transmission is autosomal recessive and consanguinity was observed in all of our patients with ML III.
Arylsulfatase activity, which is partly responsible for S cycling in soils [20], was chosen as a representative S-acquiring enzyme and was determined with p-nitrophenyl sulfate as the substrate in an acetate buffer at pH 5.8 [20].
