β-fruc·to·fu·ran·o·sid·ase

(fruk'tō-fūr'ă-nō'sid-ās),
β-h-fructosidase; an enzyme hydrolyzing β-d-fructofuranosides and releasing free d-fructose; if the substrate is sucrose, the product is d-glucose plus d-fructose (invert sugar); invert sugar is more easily digestible than sucrose.

saccharase

(săk′ə-rās′, -rāz′)
n.

saccharase

(sak′ă-rās″) [ saccharo- + -ase]
An enzyme such as sucrase that catalyzes the hydrolysis of a disaccharide to monosaccharides.

In this study, Pearson correlation clarified that the dominant urease, saccharase, and catalase were significantly positive correlated with soil pH but were significantly negative correlated with soil TN (Table 6).
The activities of soil urease, phosphatase, saccharase, and catalase in loam and clay soil were shown in Figures 4, 5, 6, and 7 and Table 1.
Seen from Table 3, DTNT values of urease, phosphatase, and saccharase activities in loam were lower than those in clay.
Seen from the average values of each enzyme activity in clay and loam soil, the four enzyme activities followed the order of urease > phosphatase > catalase > saccharase. Of the average of all soil depths, urease activity of clay was lower than that of loam by 8.6% and the difference reached significant level (P < 0.05).
Urease, phosphatase, and saccharase activities of DT were higher than DNT.
With the increasing of soil depth, urease, saccharase, and phosphatase activities all decreased (Figures 4, 5, and 6).
