Microbial community analysis and identification of alternative host-specific fecal indicators in fecal and river water samples using pyrosequencing
It is important to know the comprehensive microbial communities of fecal pollution sources and receiving water bodies for microbial source tracking. Pyrosequencing targeting the V1–V3 hypervariable
Quantitative analysis of human and cow-specific 16S rRNA gene markers for assessment of fecal pollution in river waters by real-time PCR.
Real-time PCR assay with human and cow-specific 16S rRNA gene markers identified in the T-RFLP analysis could reliably identify and quantify the fecal pollution sources, enabling effective measures in the watersheds and facilitating water quality management.
Molecular identification of fecal pollution sources in water supplies by host-specific fecal DNA markers and Terminal Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism profiles of 16S rRNA gene
The phylogenetic analysis for the clones recovered from the fecal and water samples showed that the clones from cow formed a discreet cluster from those of other sources, which could be used to identify and control the fecals pollution source in the bodies of water in Korea.
2-Methylisoborneol (2-MIB) Excretion by Pseudanabaena yagii under Low Temperature
The results suggest that the 2- MIB odor issue in the North Han River might be caused by the release of 2-MIB from the mat-forming P. yagii species in a low-temperature freshwater environment.
