Arylsulfotransferase

A sulfotransferase that catalyzes the sulfation of a Phenol in the presence of 3'-phosphoadenylylsulfate as sulfate donor to yield an aryl sulfate and Adenosine 3',5'-bisphosphate. A number of aromatic compounds can act as acceptors; however, organic Hydroxylamines are not substrates. Sulfate conjugation by this enzyme is a major pathway for the Biotransformation of Phenolic and catechol Drugs as well as Neurotransmitters. EC 2.8.2.1.
