Abstract

Hydrolysis of phenolphthalein glucuronide by β-glucuronidase has been investigated in the presence of varying concentrations of sodium chloride or acetate buffer. Results indicate that differences in the activity of the enzyme are caused by differences in the ionic strength of the medium.
