Biochem/physiol Actions

Sulfatase from Helix pomatia facilitates the synthesis of thiohydroximates. It causes the hydrolysis of β-naphthyl sulfate much faster than a-naphthyl sulfate and possesses regiospecificity in the hydrolysis of ortho and para substituted phenyl sulfates.

Unit Definition

One unit will hydrolyze 1.0 μmole of p-nitrocatechol sulfate per hour at pH 5.0 at 37 °C (30 min assay).
