A number of different enzymes are activated by certain reducing agents (e.g., KCN, H&S, cysteine, and reduced glutathione) and inactivated by oxidizing agents (e.g., K3Fe(CN)&, HzOz, and cystine). Under ideal conditions such inactivation is reversible by the addition of reducing agents (for a review of this subject cJ Hellerman (1937, 1939)). These results have been interpreted on the basis of the oxidation or reduction of substituent sulfhydryl groups in the enzyme molecule which are concerned… Expand

TLDR
A specific catalytic stain sensitive enough to demonstrate the enzymatically active molecular species of urease at concentrations approximating those used in solution assay is developed by adapting the tetrazolium salts to provide, for the first time, an assay for a nondehydrogenase enzyme system.

TLDR
Kinetic analysis indicates that Zn 2+, Mg 2+ , and Mn 2+ compete for the same site on the enzyme. Expand
Chemical Aspects of Enzyme Inhibition
TLDR
The design and synthesis of new inhibitors offers great promise when applied to the control of undesirable organisms and to the prevention and cure of disease in the immediate future. Expand
Ureolytic activities of a urease-producing bacterium and purified urease enzyme in the anoxic condition: Implication for subseafloor sand production control by microbially induced carbonate precipitation (MICP)
Abstract Microbially induced carbonate precipitation (MICP) involves the hydrolysis of urea by indigenous or introduced urease-producing bacteria, which induces carbonate precipitation. By allowingExpand
Reactions of native proteins with chemical reagents.
TLDR
This chapter considers those chemical reactions that can be used to modify native proteins under such mild conditions that little or no denaturation may be expected. Expand
Formation of a lytic enzyme by a strain of Bacillus subtilis.

  • 1959
TLDR
A strain of Bacillus subtilis which produces an enzyme capable of digesting vegetative cells of Micrococcus lysodeikticus has been isolated from soil and experimentals show that the appearance of the enzyme in the growth media is the direct result of de novo protein synthesis and not of the release of a preformed protein from within the cell.
