Abstract

The article presents the results of a model experiment studying the effect of mobile forms of lead, zinc and copper on the activity of soil urease. Urease activity in the soils contaminated by various amounts of heavy metals and the duration of their toxic effect were investigated.

Keywords

urease, lead, zinc, copper, soil, enzyme activity, inhibition, maximum permissible concentration.
