Abstract

Summary: The mechanism of mercury inhibition of invertase, β--fructofuranoside-fructohydrolase EC. 3.2.1.26, from , both and , is similar with respect to effective mercury concentrations. Contrary to previous reports on invertase from , the enzyme in this study does not dimerize in the presence of mercury nor does it exhibit competitive inhibition kinetics. A further apparent inconsistency with previous work is the marked dependency of inhibition upon pH and anion concentrations.
