Arylsulfatase (EC, sulfatase, nitrocatechol sulfatase, phenolsulfatase, phenylsulfatase, p-nitrophenyl sulfatase, arylsulfohydrolase, 4-methylumbelliferyl sulfatase, estrogen sulfatase) is a type of sulfatase enzyme with system name aryl-sulfate sulfohydrolase.[1][2][3][4] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

a phenol sulfate + H2O \rightleftharpoons a phenol + sulfate
