Organic phosphorus in the environment.

Book cover for Organic phosphorus in the environment.

Description

This book contains state-of-the-art reviews of organic phosphorus characterization and transformations in the environment. It includes 17 chapters organized into 3 main sections. Section 1 (3 chapters) describes analytical techniques used to characterize organic phosphorus compounds in environmental samples, with chapters dedicated to state-of-the-art procedures involving chromatographic separatio...

Chapter 5 (Page no: 89)

Enzymatic hydrolysis of organic phosphorus.

This paper discusses the enzymatic hydrolysis of organic phosphorus with reference to the classical inorganic and organic compartmental analysis of phosphorus compounds in ecosystems. Also discussed are: the potential use of soil organic phosphorus by plants and microorganisms; properties of phosphohydrolases; inhibitors and activators; phosphohydrolase activity in soil; rhizosphere and mycorrhizal aspects of phosphohydrolase activity; and the regulation of the phosphohydrolase activity in the rhizosphere.
