The prokaryotic diversity associated with highly metal-contaminated sediment samples collected from the Coeur d’Alene River (CdAR) was investigated using a cultivation-independent approach. Bacterial community structure was studied by constructing an RNA polymerase beta subunit (rpoB) gene library. Phylogenetic analysis revealed that 75.8% of the rpoB clones were associated with β-Proteobacteria while the remaining 24.2% were with γ-Proteobacteria. All phylotypes showed close similarity to… CONTINUE READING
