The aim of the current study was to isolate and characterize the endophytic bacterial strains from different varieties of citrus through 6S rRNA and their screening for the plant growth promoting trait IAA, siderophores detection, Phosphate solubilization, cell wall degrading enzymes and antibacterial activities against pathogenic strains of bacteria.
b) polysulfide mechanism (sphalerite (ZnS), chalcopyrite (CuFe[S.sub.2]), or galena (PbS)), where metal solubilization is resultant from a combined attack by iron(III) ions and protons and the elemental sulfur (S0) as the main intermediate:
The solubilization effects of HP[beta]CD, reduction of particle aggregation of the drug, loss in crystallinity, increased wettability and dispersibility, and alteration in the surface properties of the drug particles might be responsible for the enhanced solubility and dissolution rate of fenofibrate from its complexes and physical mixtures.
Determination of phosphate solubilization index 0.1 mL of each fresh bacterial culture was mixed in sterile distilled water and was placed on Pikovskaya, agar plates (Pikovskaya, 1948) and incubated for 7 days.
Twenty-six selected isolates used to quantify the ARP solubilization on NBRIP and MNBRI liquid media by using Erlenmeyer flasks containing 50mL of the medium.
The greater extractability of myofibrillar proteins by the denaturing solution in lamb, chicken, and sole samples could be due to the type and structure of muscle [14], suggesting that the power of solubilization could be species-specific.
The time-consuming and expensive nature of this process has paved the way for the development of a new high-throughput screen (HTS) method that can optimize the selection of appropriate solubilization excipients.

We studied the mode of action of membrane permeation and solubilization by P/WWW using model lipid membranes such as liposome and giant unilamellar vesicle.
Some strains of nitrogen fixing bacteria, besides fixing the [N.sub.2], can produce phytohormones, control pathogens, act in solubilization of minerals containing phosphorus (P) and potassium (K), contributing to plant growth.
