Comparison of DNA- and RNA-based bacterial community structures in soil exposed to 2,4-dichlorophenol.


AIMS To examine the effect of the pollutant 2,4-dichlorophenol on DNA- and RNA-based bacterial communities in soil. METHODS AND RESULTS Soil was exposed to 100 mg kg(-1) of 2,4-dichlorophenol (2,4-DCP), and degradation was monitored over 35 days. DNA and RNA were coextracted, and terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism (T-RFLP) was used to… (More)
