The influence of four inhibitors: boric acid, thioglycolic acid, sodium fluoride and acetohydroxamic acid on the activity of urease, both in the native form and immobilized covalently on glutaraldehyde-pretreated chitosan membrane, was studied. Urea hydrolysis was carried out in phosphate buffer, pH 7, at 25 degrees C at urea concentration of 50 mM. The… CONTINUE READING
