Abstract

Three 16S rRNA-targeted oligonucleotide probes, namely, PSMg437 targeting several members of the genus Pseudomonas, Hlm474 targeting several members of the genus Halomonas, and Clw844 targeting several members of the genus Colwellia, were designed. The microbial community structure and nitrogen removal ability of nitrate-containing saline wastewater treatment systems with anaerobic packed bed and fluidized bed were monitored. Direct cell counting using fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) images revealed that various phylogenetic groups were evenly distributed in the anaerobic packed bed whereas members of the genus Halomonas were dominant particularly in the anaerobic fluidized bed. These results suggest that the microbial communities produced by different flow conditions correlated with denitrification ability in saline industrial wastewater treatment systems.
