A bioluminescence assay using recombinant Nitrosomonas europaea was adopted to detect and quantify natural nitrification inhibitors in plant–soil systems. The recombinant strain of N. europaea produces a distinct two-peak luminescence due to the expression of luxAB genes, introduced from Vibrio harveyi, during nitrification. The bioluminescence produced in this assay is highly correlated with NO2− production (r2 = 0.94). Using the assay, we were able to detect significant amounts of a… CONTINUE READING
