Comparative effects of mercury contamination and wastewater effluent input on Gram-negative merA gene abundance in mudflats of an anthropized estuary (Seine, France): a microcosm approach.


The macrotidal Seine estuary (France) is one of the most man-altered and mercury-contaminated European estuaries. Molecular quantification by competitive PCR has shown that the highest quantities of Gram-negative merA genes in intertidal freshwater mudflat sediments are located in recent sediment deposits independently of mercury concentrations, suggesting… (More)
