The presence of microcystin-LR -degrading bacteria in an active anthracite biofilter and in Lake Mead, Nevada was investigated. Four bacterial isolates from enrichment culture were identified using 16S rRNA analysis. Microcystin biodegradation tests were performed with both, the enrichment cultures and the respective isolates, using microcystin alone and acetate as carbon sources. A newly recognized microcystin-degrading bacterium, Morganella morganii, was isolated from the biofilter and from… CONTINUE READING
