Involvement in diseasei

Metachromatic leukodystrophy (MLD)42 Publications
The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
Disease descriptionAn autosomal recessive disease caused by abnormal intralysosomal accumulation of cerebroside-3-sulfate in central and peripheral nervous systems, as well as other organs. MLD is clinically characterized by leukodystrophy, progressive demyelination and a variety of neurological symptoms, including gait disturbances, ataxias, optical atrophy, dementia, seizures, and spastic tetraparesis. Decreased arylsulfatase A activity is detected in urine, leukocytes, and fibroblasts of affected individuals. Several forms of the disease can be distinguished according to the age at onset and disease severity: late infantile, juvenile and adult forms, partial cerebroside sulfate deficiency, and pseudoarylsulfatase A deficiency. Individuals with pseudoarylsulfatase A deficiency have low arylsulfatase A activity but lack neurological manifestations and are apparently healthy.

Multiple sulfatase deficiency (MSD)1 Publication
The protein represented in this entry is involved in disease pathogenesis. Arylsulfatase A activity is impaired in multiple sulfatase deficiency due to mutations in SUMF1 (PubMed:15146462). SUMF1 mutations result in defective post-translational modification of ARSA at residue Cys-69 that is not converted to 3-oxoalanine (PubMed:7628016).2 Publications
Disease descriptionA clinically and biochemically heterogeneous disorder caused by the simultaneous impairment of all sulfatases, due to defective post-translational modification and activation. It combines features of individual sulfatase deficiencies such as metachromatic leukodystrophy, mucopolysaccharidosis, chondrodysplasia punctata, hydrocephalus, ichthyosis, neurologic deterioration and developmental delay.

Post-translational modificationi

The conversion to 3-oxoalanine (also known as C-formylglycine, FGly), of a serine or cysteine residue in prokaryotes and of a cysteine residue in eukaryotes, is critical for catalytic activity. This post-translational modification is severely defective in multiple sulfatase deficiency (MSD).2 Publications
