When phosphatidyl [N-methyl-14CO]choline or phosphatidyl choline di[l-14C]palmitoyl were incubated in a low phosphorus status soil there was an early and rapid release of CO2 and a concurrent increase in NaHCO3-extractable inorganic phosphorus, indicating mineralization of the added organic phosphorus. Mineraiization slowed dramatically and by 20 days only 50% of the carbon from the molecule was accounted for as microbial biomass or respiration. The rates of release of 14CO2 from the two… Expand
