Extractions of three soils at different incubation times demonstrate that 0.14M sodium pyrophosphate at pH 7.1 extracts phosphatase, urease, casein, and benzoylarginamide hydrolyzing proteases. Extraction yields of phosphatase and casein-hydrolyzing proteases are remarkably high. The most efficient length of extraction depends both on the type of soil and on the selected enzyme.
Correlation analyses of extracted enzymes and extracted C and organic N content generally show a significant correlation (p = 0.05 and 0.01).Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
