Microbial community structure and dynamics during anaerobic digestion of various agricultural waste materials
TLDR
Bacterial communities involved in the anaerobic digestion of conventional substrates such as maize silage combined with cattle manure were relatively stable and similar to each other, whereas special waste materials were digested by very distinct and less diverse communities, indicating partial ammonia inhibition or the influence of other inhibiting factors.
Dynamics of Polyphosphate-Accumulating Bacteria in Wastewater Treatment Plant Microbial Communities Detected via DAPI (4′,6′-Diamidino-2-Phenylindole) and Tetracycline Labeling
TLDR
A novel fluorescent staining technique for the quantitative detection of polyphosphate granules on the cellular level was developed and allows fast and convenient monitoring of the growth and polyph phosphate accumulation dynamics of not-yet-cultivated bacteria in wastewater bacterial communities.
Population Dynamics within a Microbial Consortium during Growth on Diesel Fuel in Saline Environments
TLDR
The combination of cytometric sorting with molecular characterization allowed us to monitor community adaptation and to identify active and proliferating subcommunities to determine the most active species.
Molecular characterization of bacterial communities mineralizing benzene under sulfate-reducing conditions.
TLDR
A functional model for syntrophic benzene degradation under sulfate-reducing conditions is proposed and this organism appears to be specific for benzene as a growth substrate and might play a key role in Benzene degradation in both communities.
Functional characterization of an anaerobic benzene-degrading enrichment culture by DNA stable isotope probing.
TLDR
The hypothesis that benzene is mineralized by a consortium consisting of syntrophs, hydrogenotrophic sulfate reducers and to a minor extent of aceticlastic methanogens is supported.
Influence of high salinities on the degradation of diesel fuel by bacterial consortia.
TLDR
The bioremediation of contaminated saline soils should be quite possible if the salinity of the soil water is lower than 15% or if it is reduced below this limit by the addition of water, as verified by the BIOLOG method.
Anaerobic benzene degradation by bacteria
TLDR
This review summarizes the current knowledge about the ‘key players’ of anaerobic benzene degradation under different electron acceptor conditions and the possible pathway(s) of an aerobically degraded benzene degraded organisms.
Key players and team play: anaerobic microbial communities in hydrocarbon-contaminated aquifers
TLDR
Current approaches to analyze composition, dynamics, and functional diversity of subsurface communities, to link identity to activity and metabolic function, and to identify the ecophysiological role of not yet cultured microbes and syntrophic consortia are focused on.
Transcription Analysis of Genes Encoding Homologues of Reductive Dehalogenases in “Dehalococcoides” sp. Strain CBDB1 by Using Terminal Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism and Quantitative PCR
TLDR
The transcription of reductive dehalogenase homologous (rdh) genes of “Dehalococcoides” sp.
A transposon encoding the complete 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid degradation pathway in the alkalitolerant strain Delftia acidovorans P4a.
TLDR
The present study provides the first reported case of a chromosomally located catabolic transposon which carries the genes for the complete 2,4-D degradation pathway.
