Interrelationship between extracellular enzyme activity, ATP content, total counts of bacteria and CO2 evolution

  title={Interrelationship between extracellular enzyme activity, ATP content, total counts of bacteria and CO2 evolution},
  author={Farouq Asmar and Finn Eiland and Niels Erik Nielsen},
  journal={Biology and Fertility of Soils},
In an incubation experiment, soil was amended to induce changes in microbial growth and enzyme production. The soluble fraction of newly produced protease (extracellular enzyme) was separated from the soil by a sterilized millipore filter. The activity of total and soluble protease, ATP content, number of acridine orange-stained bacteria, and CO2 evolution in soils were measured during the incubation. Increases in soluble and total protease activities in soils amended with agar and glucose… CONTINUE READING
