This is due to risk factors for PUBs, specifically constipation, indwelling catheters, female gender, alkaline urine, and the presence of bacteria containing sulphatase
or phosphatase enzymes.
* High bacterial load (8)-bacterial sulphatase
and phosphatase availability.
Malini et al., "Potent active site-directed inhibition of steroid sulphatase
by tricyclic coumarin-based sulphamates," Chemistry and Biology, vol.
In the presence of indoxyl phosphatase and sulphatase
enzyme activities, whilst collected in the catheter system, UIS is degraded to form a mixture of indigo and dissolved indirubin in the plastic (11), coating the catheter system with a purple appearance.
As stated previously, it inhibits oestradiol sulphatase
but stimulates the sulphotransferase enzymes, which result in low levels of endogenous oestradiol in mammary tissue.
Activity of acid phosphatase, aryl sulphatase
and cathespin D in blood serum of patients with psoriasis before and after therapy - a preliminary study.
Negative results were observed for nitrate reductase, tolerance to 5 per cent NaCl, aryl sulphatase
at 3 days and no growth appeared at MacConkey agar medium.
A Comparison of Sulphatase
, Urease and Protease Activities in Planted and in Fallow Soils.
Children with the disease, also known as MPS Type II, are missing an enzyme called iduronate sulphate sulphatase

This gene, called STS, affects the activity of an enzyme, steroid sulphatase
. There had previously been confusion over whether the gene is on the X or one of the non-sex chromosomes.
They also contain heparin, striptease, aryl sulphatase
, betaglucuronidase, eosinophil/neutrophilic chemotactic factor, Prostaglandin P2, platelet activating factor, and leukotrienes.
