An organism producing the enzyme urease will break down the urea into ammonia and carbon dioxide. This gives the media an alkaline pH. pH Indicator: phenol red Hot pink = (+) for urease peach = (-) for urease v) Phenylalanine slant (74) - Differential - Enzyme test Media contains the amino acid phenylalanine. An organism producing phenylalanine deaminase (PDase) will deaminate the phenylalanine and this produces ammonia and phenyl pyruvic acid. The addition of a reagent (l0o/o FeCl3) will cause a green color...
