Compared with inorganic fertiliser treatment, the activities of sucrase, urease, proteinase, acid phosphatase, catalase, and GMea in the combined treatments increased by 21.7-36.7, 20.1-31.1, 55.1-67.4, 16.6-28.2, 23.3-42.1, and 28.4-37.9% respectively.

Decreased maltase and sucrase activities thus have a high positive predictive value for the degree of mucosal villous atrophy.
Results showed that the extracts were able to inhibit the in vitro activities of maltase, sucrase and alpha-amylase in a dose dependent perspective.
Insoluble glucan synthesis by mutans sucrase as a determinant of the cariogenicity of Streptococcus mutans.
The supernatant was used for the measurement of in vitro maltase, sucrase and lactase activities and protein determination (Pereira et al.
Intestinal maltase and sucrase activities (44.33% and 25.38% respectively) were also reduced sgnificantly by ethanol extract (Mohammadi et al., 2010).
Additionally, cats have very low levels of the enzyme sucrase in their digestive tract, so they cannot break down sucrose or table sugar very well.
(2001b) showed that there was a significant decrease in the activities of sucrase (29%), lactase (20%) and alkaline phosphatase (24%) compares to control animals.
It also regulates blood sugar by inhibiting enzymes sucrase and alpha-amylase thus slowing the break-down of carbohydrates into sugar thereby reducing blood sugar levels in the body.
