Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits sulfuric ester hydrolase activity. Predicted to be involved in glycosaminoglycan catabolic process and heparan sulfate proteoglycan catabolic process. Predicted to localize to lysosome. Used to study mucopolysaccharidosis III. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in mucopolysaccharidosis III and mucopolysaccharidosis type IIIA. Orthologous to human SGSH (N-sulfoglucosamine sulfohydrolase).
