Abstract

The enzyme urease has been isolated from the seeds of the watermelon of the “Ogonek” variety and has been characterized. The molecular weight of a rechromatographed sample of the enzyme has been determined as 480,000. The pH dependence of the activity of the urease and the kinetic parameters of the enzyme have been studied.
