**Summary:**In this paper we discuss some algebraic properties of Toeplitz operators with separately quasihomogeneous symbols (i.e., symbols being of the form $\xi^{k}\varphi(|z_1|,\ldots,|z_n|)$) on the Bergman space of the unit ball in $\mathbb{C}^n$. We provide a decomposition of $L^{2}(B_{n},\mathrm dv)$, then we use it to show that the zero product of two Toeplitz operators has only a trivial solution if one of the symbols is separately quasihomogeneous and the other is arbitrary. Also, we describe the commutant of a Toeplitz operator whose symbol is radial.
