  • Resin acids contribute to the acute toxicity of pulp and paper mill effluent. We monitored the abundance and metabolic activity of the resin acid degrader, Pseudomonas abietaniphila BKME-9, within complex communities of laboratory-scale effluent treatment systems using competitive PCR and competitive RT-PCR, targeting the 16S rDNA and rRNA. In continuous culture, a positive linear relationship was found between the rRNA:rDNA ratio and specific growth rate of BKME-9. In batch culture, the rRNA… CONTINUE READING
