For experiments, normal phosphate (NP) groups refers to groups receiving standard cell culture media, and high phosphate (HP) groups refers to groups receiving media supplemented with 3 mM inorganic phosphate in the form of dibasic sodium phosphate.
This enzyme catalyzes adenosine monophosphate conversion into inorganic phosphate, which makes it a calcification accelerator.
So it's not surprising that various organisms have evolved mechanisms for turning phosphonic acids--including glyphosate --into inorganic phosphate.
To fulfill the requirement of fish, phosphorus is added in the feed as inorganic phosphate but this may also increase the excretion of phosphorus which can pollute the environment.
It consists of two coupled rotary motors: an integral membrane complex driven by proton flow across lipid bilayers (FO) and an enzymatic complex that converts ADP and inorganic phosphate to ATP (F1).
In fungal culture, the production of organic acids such as citric, succinic, and malic acids is associated with inorganic phosphate solubilization (23).
SLC20A2 appears to be involved in maintaining phosphate homeostasis by coding for an inorganic phosphate transporter expressed in many tissues, including the brain and vascular smooth muscle cells.
The rate of transfer of phosphate group to phosphate acceptors was increased while the amount of inorganic phosphate (Pi) produced remained same and was equal to the amount of Pi released in water when no alcohol was added.

Increase in P contents of root and shoot of mash bean by inoculation of PSB strains might be due to solubilization of inorganic phosphate through production of organic acids and/or mineralization of organic P by phosphatase enzymes (Hussain et al.
Recently, the use of inorganic compounds containing phosphorous to improve flame retardant properties of polymers has increased significantly, thus providing a complement to existing halogenated substances [21], Among the phosphorousbased compounds, inorganic phosphate glasses (P-glasses) display a wide range of desirable properties such as chemical durability, high thermal expansion, good electrical conductivity, optical clarity, biocompatibility [22], and flame retardant properties [23-25].
