The biological fate of 17α-ethinylestradiol (EE2; 500 ng/L to 1 mg/L) and trimethoprim (TMP; 1 μg/L to 1 mg/L) was evaluated with flow through reactors containing an ammonia oxidizing bacterial (AOB) culture, two enriched heterotrophic cultures devoid of nitrifier activity, and nitrifying activated sludge (NAS) cultures. AOBs biotransformed EE2 but not TMP,(More)
The biotransformation of 17alpha-ethinylestradiol (EE2) by an ammonia oxidizing bacteria, Nitrosomonas europaea, grown in batch (ammonia-rich) and continuous flow (chemostat, ammonia-limited) reactors was investigated. Both C-14 labeled EE2 (10 gammag/L) and unlabeled EE2 (1 mg/L) were used to facilitate metabolite identification under environmentally(More)
