The nickel metalloenzyme urease catalyses the hydrolysis of urea to ammonia and carbamate, and thus generates the preferred nitrogen source of many organisms. When produced by bacterial pathogens in either the urinary tract or the gastroduodenal region, urease acts as a virulence factor. At both sites of infection urease is known to enhance the survival of the infecting bacteria. Ammonia resulting from the action of urease is believed to increase the pH of the environment to one more favourable… Expand
