Degenerate primers as biomarker for gene-targeted metagenomics of the catechol 1, 2-dioxygenase-encoding gene in microbial populations of petroleum-contaminated environments

Abstract

Catechol 1, 2-dioxygenase (1, 2-CTD) plays an important role in the biodegradation of most aromatic pollutants (e.g. phenol) by cleaving the bond between the phenolic hydroxyl groups. In this study, we analysed microbial populations in petroleum-contaminated soil samples by the culture-dependent approach and chose one population as a sample location for… (More)
