arylsulfatase

(redirected from arylsulphatase)

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)

Urine dermatan sulphate concentrations were elevated in both of them and the gross elevations of plasma beta-hexosaminidase, arylsulphatase A and alphamannosidase were consistent with a diagnosis of ML II/III.
These enzymes include dehydrogenase, glucosidases, urease, amidases, phosphatases, arylsulphatase, cellulases, and phenol oxidases.

Activities of the enzymes [beta]-glucosidase, acid phosphatase, arylsulphatase and hydrolysis of fluorescein diacetate (FDA) were measured using colorimetric methods.
Arylsulphatase activity was determined according to the methodology of Tabatabai and Bremner (1970), dehydrogenase activity according to Casida-Junior et al.
Higher Cd concentration can reduce the activities of essential enzymes such as protease, urease, arylsulphatase and alkaline phosphatase (Lorenz et al., 2006).
It is likely that they act as inhibitors of these enzymes; the ability of phenolic compounds to inhibit the variety of enzymes like hydrolases, hyalouronidase, alkaline phosphatise, arylsulphatase, cAMP phosphodiesterase, lipase, a- glucosidase, kinase have already been reported (Rani et al., 2009).
Although eosinophils secrete tissue-damaging enzymes (collagenase, peroxidase, acid phosphatase, alkaline phosphatase, arylsulphatase ribonuclease, and [beta]-glucuronidase) and major basic proteins that are cytotoxic and known to induce myocardial damage, the specific role of eosinophils with respect to the actual timing of events in the pathophysiology of ECM remains to be understood.
Elevated C[O.sub.2] induces an increase of soil enzymatic activities (protease, xylanase, invertase, phenol oxidase, alkaline phosphatase, and arylsulphatase) in the main rooting zone due to enzyme regulation (synthesis and activity) via enlarged pool of easily available substrates rather than by shifts in microbial abundance [57].
