2008), suggesting that the pH decrease, usually associated with the production of different organic acids, may be one of the mechanisms used by these bacteria to solubilize the mineral and release the K present in their crystalline structure.
The major objective of the research was to determine the solubilization potential of selected isolates to solubilize insoluble soil minerals such as potassium in vitro.
However, all the selected isolates were able to solubilize TCP in NBRIP agar media.

However, our results showed that the strain USDA110 was able to solubilize a great quantity of P using the two sources of phosphates.
The isolated phosphate solubilizing fungus was further screened for their ability to solubilize phosphate and insoluble phosphate was measured quantitatively in liquid medium.
The resulting technologies, the Lateral Ultrasonic Thrust (LUT) and the Fresnel Annular Segmented Actuator (FASA) element, are the basis of a single instrument that can thaw, solubilize, mix, and suspend drug discovery in 96- to 3,456-well microplates.
Other laboratories had reported the use of alcohols or detergents to solubilize lipid extracts for cholesterol analysis with enzymatic reagents (1-3).
Some no-clean fluxes are more water-cleanable than others, but this is typically in open areas; the fluxes do not solubilize or are not rinsed well in areas of entrapment (below components and in vias).
