Core Tip The enzyme steroid sulfatase (STS) cleaves sulfate groups from neuroactive steroid hormones thereby altering their activity. Here, we review cross-species evidence indicating that deficiency for this enzyme might influence behaviour and vulnerability to psychiatric illness; we then suggest potential mediating mechanisms. Understanding whether or not STS deficiency impacts upon neural function, and if so, how, has potential implications for diagnosis, counselling and treatment in cases of X-linked ichthyosis (the dermatological condition associated with STS deficiency). Moreover, this understanding may provide more general novel insights into the pathogenesis of common and disabling psychiatric disorders.
