Summary of "Stable isotope probing of hypoxic toluene degradation at the Siklós aquifer reveals prominent role of Rhodocyclaceae."

The availability of oxygen is often a limiting factor for the degradation of aromatic hydrocarbons in subsurface environments. However, while both aerobic and anaerobic degraders have been intensively studied, degradation betwixt, under micro- or hypoxic conditions has rarely been addressed. It is speculated that in environments with limited, but sustained oxygen supply, such as in the vicinity of groundwater monitoring wells, hypoxic degradation may take place. A large diversity of subfamily I.2.C extradiol dioxygenase genes has been previously detected in a BTEX-contaminated aquifer in Hungary. Older literature suggests that such catabolic potentials could be associated to hypoxic degradation. Bacterial communities dominated by members of the Rhodocyclaceae were found, but the majority of the detected C23O genotypes could not be affiliated to any known bacterial degrader lineages. To address this, a stable isotope probing (SIP) incubation of site sediments with 13C7-toluene was performed under microoxic conditions. A combination of 16S rRNA gene amplicon sequencing and T-RFLP fingerprinting of C23O genes from SIP gradient fractions revealed the central role of degraders within the Rhodocyclaceae in hypoxic toluene degradation. The main assimilators of 13C were identified as members of the genera Quatrionicoccus and Zoogloea, and a yet uncultured group of the Rhodocyclaceae.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Hydrogen. The first chemical element in the periodic table. It has the atomic symbol H, atomic number 1, and atomic weight 1. It exists, under normal conditions, as a colorless, odorless, tasteless, diatomic gas. Hydrogen ions are PROTONS. Besides the common H1 isotope, hydrogen exists as the stable isotope DEUTERIUM and the unstable, radioactive isotope TRITIUM.

Catalyzes the oxidation of catechol to 2-hydroxymuconate semialdehyde in the carbazole and BENZOATE degradation via HYDROXYLATION pathways. It also catalyzes the conversion of 3-methylcatechol to cis, cis-2-hydroxy-6-oxohept-2,4-dienoate in the TOLUENE and XYLENE degradation pathway. This enzyme was formerly characterized as EC 1.13.1.2.
