  • Fe(II)-oxydizing NO3--reducing bacteria in sediment samples collected from freshwater aquifer, flooded paddy soil and estuarine area were quantified and analysed on species composition. The MPN results showed that among the three studied environments, flooded paddy soil had the highest number of these bacteria (9.3 • 103.g-1), five and two times higher than that of freshwater aquifer and estuarine sediment, respectively. Based on distinguish colony characteristics, 12 strains of Fe(II)-oxidizing, NO3-- reducing bacteria were isolated from MPN series and were set into five genetically different groups as proposed by ARDRA analyses with two restricition enzymes HaeIII and MspI, showing relatively high diversity of this bacterial group in the studied environments. Analysing species com...

  • Via enrichment procedures carried out on a dioxin contaminated sediment sample from lotus pond at Danang airport, a microbial community assigned as DN553 with high capability of carbazol degradation was established. Analyses of community structure by using denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) of 16S rDNA fragments indicated that Achromobacter and Alcaligenes species dominated in this enrichment culture. In addition to carbazol, the enrichment culture was also able to utilize other PAH compounds such as naphthalene and phenanthrene as the only carbon and energy sources. In the presence of different PAH as growth substrates, the community structure changed accordingly, however the Achromobacter and Acaligenes groups still remained. Thus, the enrichment cultures DN553 could b...
