About the Edition

Molecular techniques were used to characterize an enriched methanogenic toluene-degrading consortium of microorganisms, to identify putative genes (referred to as bssABE) which code for enzymes involved in the first step of toluene mineralization by this community, and to gain information about relationships between putative genes and organisms identified. A cloning study revealed that two organisms, Eub-1 and Eub-6, had survived in the consortium over an 8 year period, suggesting an important role for each of these organisms in the community. Degenerate primers designed from known bss operon sequences were used to identify at least two putative bssA and one putative bssBE. To our knowledge, this is the first report of putative bssABE sequences obtained from a methanogenic community. The presence of two putative bssA sequences may suggest the presence of two different toluene-activating organisms, a hypothesis supported by results from a quantitative PCR study of the consortium.

The enriched consortium has been previously shown to degrade high concentrations (> μM) of benzene rapidly (within 2 weeks). Mineralization was confirmed by the release of 14 CO 2 from radiolabeled benzene.

Also, the role of sulfate as the terminal electron acceptor was demonstrated by the stoichiometric balance between benzene loss and sulfate by: Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) such as naphthalene are widespread, recalcitrant pollutants in anoxic and methanogenic environments.

A mechanism catalyzing PAH activation under methanogenic conditions has yet to be discovered, and the microbial communities coordinating their metabolism are largely unknown.

Hence, the biosynthesis and biodegradation of aromatic ring compounds constitutes an important part of natural carbon cycle.

Reports indicate that toluene is transformed via fumarate addition to form benzylsuccinate or by unknown mechanisms to form hydroxylated intermediates under methanogenic conditions.
