Alkaline phosphatase (AP) kinetic experiments were performed in a broad range of trophic conditions in the transition zone between the North African upwelling and the open ocean, in order to investigate the effect of nutrient richness on kinetic parameters. Turnover times decreased from 224 h in the open ocean to 13 h in the upwelling region. K + Sn showed the lowest values at the most eutrophic station (27 nM), while at this station Vm reached its maximum value of 2.1 nM h–1. Nevertheless, as… CONTINUE READING
