Cerebroside-sulfatase (EC 3.1.6.8, arylsulfatase A, cerebroside sulfate sulfatase) is an enzyme with systematic name cerebroside-3-sulfate 3-sulfohydrolase.[1][2] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

a cerebroside 3-sulfate + H2O a cerebroside + sulfate

This enzyme hydrolyses galactose-3-sulfate residues in a number of lipids.
