A deficiency of N-acetylgalactosamine-4-sulphatase (G4S, gene symbol ARSB), results in the accumulation of undegraded substrate and the lysosomal storage disorder, Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome (mucopolysaccharidosis type VI). In situ hybridization using an 3H-labelled human G4S genomic DNA fragment to human metaphase chromosomes localized ARSB to chromosome 5q13-5q14. This location is consistent with, an refines, previous chromosomal assignments based on the expression of human G4S in somatic cell hybrids.
