Interactions between microbial species, including competition and mutualism, influence the abundance and distribution of the related species. For example, metabolic cooperation among multiple bacteria plays a major role in the maintenance of consortia. This study aims to clarify how two bacterial species coexist in a syntrophic association involving the degradation of the pesticide fenitrothion. To elucidate essential mechanisms for maintaining a syntrophic association, we employed a… CONTINUE READING
