The survival and effectiveness of a bioaugmentation strain in its target environment depend not only on physicochemical parameters in the soil but also on the physiological state of the inoculated organism. This study examined the effect of variations in inoculum pretreatment on the survival, metabolic activity (measured as rRNA content) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH)-catabolic gene expression of Sphingobium yanoikuyae B1 in an aged PAH-contaminated soil. RNA denaturing gradient gel… CONTINUE READING
