In enzymology, a D-lactate-2-sulfatase (EC is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

(S)-2-O-sulfolactate + H2O (S)-lactate + sulfate

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are (S)-2-O-sulfolactate and H2O, whereas its two products are (S)-lactate and sulfate.

This enzyme belongs to the family of hydrolases, specifically those acting on sulfuric ester bonds. The systematic name of this enzyme class is (S)-2-O-sulfolactate 2-sulfohydrolase.
