Arylsulfatase E also known as ARSE is an enzyme which in humans is encoded by the ARSE gene.[1]


Arylsulfatase E is a member of the arylsulfatase subfamily of sulfatase enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of sulfate esters. It is glycosylated postranslationally and localized to the golgi apparatus. Sulfatases are essential for the correct composition of bone and cartilage matrix.[2]

Clinical significance

Deficiencies in ARSE are associated with X-linked recessive chondrodysplasia punctata, a disease characterized by abnormalities in cartilage and bone development.[3]
