In this study, the feasibility of quinoline-wastewater treatment was investigated in a coupled microbial electrolysis cell and anaerobic digestion system (MEC-AD). Improved degradation and enhanced mineralization of quinoline were obtained, and the optimal voltage was determined to be 1.0 V. Effective removal of quinoline at relative high concentration, and a 1.5-fold increase in methane production were achieved. The results indicated that the MEC-AD could simultaneously remove carbon and nitrogen from quinoline. Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry analysis identified 2-hydroxyquinoline and 8-hydroxycoumarin as the intermediates of quinoline. The formation and degradation of metabolites were rapid, and they did not accumulate in the MEC-AD. The results of microbial community structure analysis demonstrated that the functional species were enriched and coexisted, and that the dominant bacterial genera were SM1A02, Comamonas, Desulfovibrio, Geobacter, and Actinomarinales_norank; the dominant archaeal genera were Methanocorpusculum and Nitrosoarchaeum. Furthermore, the applied current played a selective role in the enrichment of microorganisms.

Enumeration by direct count of viable, isolated bacterial, archaeal, or fungal CELLS or SPORES capable of growth on solid CULTURE MEDIA. Each colony (i.e., microbial colony-forming unit) represents the progeny of a single cell in the original inoculum. The method is used routinely by environmental microbiologists for quantifying organisms in AIR; FOOD; and WATER; by clinicians for measuring patients' microbial load; and in antimicrobial drug testing.
The segregation and degradation of damaged or unwanted cytoplasmic constituents by autophagic vacuoles (cytolysosomes) composed of LYSOSOMES containing cellular components in the process of digestion; it plays an important role in BIOLOGICAL METAMORPHOSIS of amphibians, in the removal of bone by osteoclasts, and in the degradation of normal cell components in nutritional deficiency states.
A frequent complication of drug therapy for microbial infection. It may result from opportunistic colonization following immunosuppression by the primary pathogen and can be influenced by the time interval between infections, microbial physiology, or host resistance. Experimental challenge and in vitro models are sometimes used in virulence and infectivity studies.
Specialized junctions at which a neuron communicates with a target cell. At classical synapses, a neuron's presynaptic terminal releases a chemical transmitter stored in synaptic vesicles which diffuses across a narrow synaptic cleft and activates receptors on the postsynaptic membrane of the target cell. The target may be a dendrite, cell body, or axon of another neuron, or a specialized region of a muscle or secretory cell. Neurons may also communicate via direct electrical coupling with ELECTRICAL SYNAPSES. Several other non-synaptic chemical or electric signal transmitting processes occur via extracellular mediated interactions.
Light absorbing proteins and protein prosthetic groups found in certain microorganisms. Some microbial photoreceptors initiate specific chemical reactions which signal a change in the environment, while others generate energy by pumping specific ions across a cellular membrane.
