Stable isotope probing (SIP) was used to investigate the microorganisms responsible for degradation of the herbicide, 2,4dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) in soil samples. Soils were unamended or amended with either unlabeled 2,4-D or UL(ring) C-2,4D. Degradation of 2,4-D was complete after 17 days, whereas little removal (1173%) was observed in the sterile controls. Terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism (TRFLP) on soil DNA after 17 days indicated a consistent increase in the… CONTINUE READING
