ARSB Removes sulfate groups from chondroitin-4-sulfate (C4S) and regulates its degradation. Involved in the regulation of cell adhesion, cell migration and invasion in colonic epithelium. In the central nervous system, is a regulator of neurite outgrowth and neuronal plasticity, acting through the control of sulfate glycosaminoglycans and neurocan levels. Belongs to the sulfatase family. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
