Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have arylsulfatase activity and calcium ion binding activity. Involved in binding activity of sperm to zona pellucida. Localizes to the integral component of membrane and plasma membrane. Used to study metachromatic leukodystrophy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in metachromatic leukodystrophy. Is expressed in brain and genitourinary system. Orthologous to human ARSA (arylsulfatase A).
