Effect of Mineral Phosphate Solubilization on Biological Nitrogen Fixation by Diazotrophic Cyanobacteria


The ability of two diazotrophic cyanobacteria Westiellopsis prolifica and Anabaena variabilis were examined to solubilize extracellular insoluble tricalcium phosphate (TCP) and Mussorie rock phosphate (MRP). The two strains exhibited a differential response to insoluble forms of phosphorus used. W. prolifica showed better growth in presence of MRP while A… (More)
