A river water microbial community was studied in response to perturbation with the monoterpene enantiomers R- and S-carvone. The microbial community structure and function was also evaluated after enantiomers exposure was switched. Microbial communities were evaluated by length heterogeneity PCR. The addition of R- and S-carvone enriched for a range of functionally different communities: enantiomer-selective, racemic and ones that contain both. After 5 days incubation, the R- and S-carvone… CONTINUE READING
