The halogenated compound tetrachloroethene (perchloroethene, PCE) is a persistent contaminant of aquifers, soils and sediments. Although a number of microorganisms are known to reductively dechlorinate PCE by dehalorespiration, their diversity and community structure especially in pristine environments remain elusive. In this study, we report on the detection of a novel group of dehalorespiring bacteria that reductively dechlorinate PCE to cis-dichloroethene by RNA-based stable isotope probing… CONTINUE READING
