A sulfate-reducing bacterial consortium was enriched from an anoxic aquifer contaminated with BTEX compounds, using toluene as a growth substrate. Total cell counts, protein contents and sulfide production were determined to follow growth at the in situ temperature (14 degrees C) and at 25 degrees C, respectively. Community members were identified by 16S rRNA gene cloning and sequencing. Phylogenetic analysis revealed 12 sequence types belonging to Deltaproteobacteria (several groups… CONTINUE READING
