Table 2 Results of T-RF analyses. Schematic representation of T-RFs obtained after RsaI digestion of 16S rRNA genes amplified from DNA of samples of OMW, anaerobically-treated OMW (GAC-reactor effluents) and biofilm from the SB-aerobic biofilter.

  1. The dominant (height) T-RF peak in each profile is indicated in boldface. Individual clones having a corresponding peak in the T-RF profiles are indicated below. The numbers indicate the relative abundance of individual T-RF. These values were calculated based on the peak height of individual T-RF in relation to the total peak height of all T-RFs detected in the respective community fingerprint pattern. The peak heights were automatically quantified by GeneScan software (PE Applied Biosystems), performing the analysis with a peak height threshold of 50 fluorescent units.
