Image 2 of 34

Ureases are found in numerous bacteria, fungi, algae, plants, and some invertebrates, as well as in soils, as a soil enzyme. These enzymes catalyze the hydrolysis of urea into carbon dioxide and ammonia. Many gastrointestinal or urinary tract pathogens produce urease, enabling the detection of urease to be used as a diagnostic to detect presence of pathogens. Urease-positive pathogens include: Proteus mirabilis and Proteus vulgaris, Ureaplasma urealyticum, Nocardia, Corynebacterium urealyticum, Cryptococcus spp, Helicobacter pylori, Certain Enteric bacteria including (Proteus spp., Klebsiella spp., Morganella, Providencia, and possibly Serratia spp.), Brucella, Staphylococcus saprophyticus and Staphylococcus aureus.
