Ammonia monooxygenase encoding mRNA (amoA mRNA) transcription in the wastewater treatment process was investigated using reverse transcription PCR (RT-PCR) as the model indicating specific function and activity in nitrifying processes. The dynamic response of amoA mRNA transcription and ammonia-oxidizing activity to the change of environmental conditions such as pH and concentration of ammonia was examined to determine the inductive factor and the inhibitor for amoA mRNA expression. Furthermore… CONTINUE READING
