Whether the microbial community in the intermediately contaminated soil B was affected by the mercury is less evident. Hence, in the present study the community became gradually more dominated by r-strategists as the mercury concentration increased. Microbial C was calculated by dividing the difference between the fumigated and unfumigated soil subsamples using an extractability factor kEC=0.33 [15]. Callaghan A combined approach was necessary to obtain a more detailed picture of the community, however. Michelsen The similarity within and between each soil based on the presence of individual morphotypes (X), DGGE bands (Y) and substrate utilization (Z). E.

B.P. Mercury can co-select for antibiotic resistance genes in soil. The soil analyses were determined as follows: soil acidity, total C- Substrate utilization profiles have previously been reported both to differ between metal-rich sludge-amended soil and control soil [29,30] and not to differ [4]. Whipps Although there have been few direct studies of soil sequestration of Hg, immobilization of Hg in forest soil is known to correspond with the retention of organic carbon (Schwesig et al. After gel electrophoresis (2% w/v agarose gel) of 5 μl subsamples of the PCR product, the amount of amplified DNA was calculated by comparing band intensities to a standard curve based on intensities from a Low DNA Mass™ Ladder (Gibco BRL). If contaminated with mercury, it causes contamination of soil. Hg driven co-selection of several ARGs namely intI1, tetA and tetB were observed in the alkaline soil within the tested Hg concentrations. McGrath The high concentration of mercury in soil C seems to have markedly affected the soil microbial community on many different levels. Mercury is a toxic element found throughout the environment. In the present investigation, the total number of CFU was markedly reduced in the heavily contaminated soil. Published by Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved. The CFU were enumerated after 4 days of incubation at 25°C. Similarity within each soil was expressed as the percentage of morphotypes and DGGE bands present or substrates utilized in all of the three replicates. S.P. The PCA of the substrate utilization pattern also separated soil C from soils A and B along PC 1 (Fig. For full access to this pdf, sign in to an existing account, or purchase an annual subscription. Microbial N was calculated in the same manner using an extractability factor kEN=0.5 [16,17]. The extract was further purified by Wizard DNA clean-up system (Promega, Madison, WI, USA). The PCA based on the DGGE profiles (Fig. Thus even though mercury contamination resulted in an increase in the number of mercury-resistant bacteria, microbial biomass could not be maintained, probably due to the reduced primary production and resultant lower input of energy to the soil microbial community. Chaudri An essential requisite for controlling and monitoring mercury in the environment is to identify its species in different types of soils and sediments, as this will help not only to establish its mobility in the environment and ecosystem and the degree of its toxicity, but also to establish the source of contamination. (, Bååth P.C. (, Barkay (, Westergaard © 2001 Federation of European Microbiological Societies. The soils differed in other ways than the mercury concentration, e.g. R.A. S.M.

Long-lasting effect of mercury contamination on the soil microbiota and its co-selection of antibiotic resistance. T. Bands were detected manually from digital images of the gel and quantified (average peak intensity) using image analysis (Quantity One 4.0.1, Bio-Rad). The percentage of these that were mercury-resistant was higher in soil C than in the other two soils, in which the level of resistance was similar. The appearance of colonies on agar plates over a 14-day period (Fig. The last resort antibiotic vancomycin resistance gene, vanB and quinolone resistance gene, qnrS were not detected. A.G. R.R. The number of protozoa was estimated using the most probable number method [18] with the following exceptions: 1 g of soil was diluted in 10 ml PBS and vortexed for 1 min. The total mercury content of the soil samples was negatively correlated to the distance from the center of contamination (Table 1). The colonies were grouped into morphotypes on the basis of visual differences using characteristics such as colony color, diameter, edge, surface (roughness and shininess) and other special characteristics, e.g. The spread of heavy metals in the terrestrial environment is largely attributable to anthropogenic activities such as field application of sewage sludge, various industrial activities and the disposal of waste products. Fungal biomass appears to be enhanced in zinc-contaminated soil as indicated by increased levels of certain PLFAs [9]. The gel was destained in distilled water for 1/2 h prior to exposure to UV transillumination using Gel Doc 1000 (Bio-Rad) equipment. The PCR was then performed with a Perkin-Elmer 9600 thermocycler using the following cycles: 1 min at 94°C, 1 min at 65°C, 3 min at 72°C with a touchdown of 0.5°C per cycle for the first 20 cycles. In order to minimize the effects of different inoculation densities, the plates were read when the average well color density (AWCD) on a plate was 0.5±0.1. mercury) to our soils through mining, smelting, industry, agriculture and burning fossil fuels. Mercury is naturally attenuated in soil following long-term ageing. High mercury (Hg) affects biochemical-physiological characteristics of plant leaves such as leaf chlorophyll, causing refractive discontinuity and modifications in leaf spectra. Visible colonies were enumerated and marked daily throughout the incubation period. Inter-replicate and inter-soil similarities in substrate utilization in the Ecoplates® were similar and rather high (Fig. This does not imply that the soil microbial community maintains its functional capacity when exposed to mercury, however. We also thank Lasse D. Rasmussen for technical advice on the measurements of bioavailable mercury and Morten Miller for technical advice on the measurements of fungal biomass. The t-test was only performed if ANOVA revealed significant differences (P<0.05). • ARG co-selection is strongly … (, Muyzer The principal component analysis (PCA) of colony morphology typing (Fig. A standard curve was established using the regression equation for the relationship between the amount of bioavailable mercury and the expression factors obtained from a standard assay (Hg(NO3)2 diluted in distilled H2O). S.C. The major sink of elemental mercury is deposition to soil or water bodies after oxidation to divalent mercury [Hg(II)] (O'Connor et al., 2019, Selin, 2009). Further studies involving a greater number of sampling sites along the contamination gradient are needed to clarify the tendencies detected in this study concerning the impact of long-term mercury exposure on the soil microbial community structure and function. DGGE profiles of amplified 16S rDNA fragments from soil A (lanes labelled A), soil B (lanes labelled B) and soil C (lanes labelled C). (, Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford. R.G. To our knowledge, there have been no previous investigations of the effect of mercury on the soil protozoan population. E. P. Thus long-term exposure to heavy metals (Zn, Cu and Ni) has been found to alter microbial structure as assessed from total soil PLFA (phospholipid fatty acids) profiles [4]. The aim of the present study was to determine the effect of long-term mercury exposure on the soil microbial community, in particular on the structure of the bacterial community. To this end, quantification of fungal, protozoan and bacterial populations was combined with four different assays measuring the composition of the bacterial community: day of appearance of colonies on agar plates, morphology of colonies on agar plates, profiles of 16S rDNA sequences of whole-community DNA analyzed by DGGE, and sole carbon source utilization on Ecoplates®. Antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) in the environment are an exposure risk to humans and animals and is emerging as a global public health concern. T.V. Mercury contamination, a serious health risk, has plagued the indigenous community in northern Ontario for decades. (, Frostegård 2). Rangger Historical use of mercury has resulted in soil and groundwater contamination that may require remediation. DGGE of the amplified 16S rDNA sequences was performed on triplicate samples of each soil using the Bio-Rad Protecan II system (Hercules, USA). E. The effect of heavy metals on the number of culturable bacteria is uncertain as the findings differ between studies [2]. This paper has been recommended for acceptance by Yong Sik Ok. Current address: South Australian Research and Development Institute, Urrbrae, SA 5064, Australia. Submitted / Yorkton This Week. M. The data were standardized by dividing individual wells by AWCD [25]. The present study only included three sites (levels of mercury contamination) along the mercury concentration gradient from the center of contamination. The pellet was resuspended in 100 ml sterile water, and the blending procedure repeated pooling the two supernatants. Furthermore, the hyperspectroscopy provides a potential tool for fast non-destructive estimation of leaf Hg. Christensen D.S. S. Both soils contained ARGs conferring resistance to tetracycline (tetA, tetB), sulphonamides (sul1), trimethoprim (dfrA1) and the ARG indicator class 1 integron-integrase gene, intI1, as measured by qPCR. T. Prior to inoculation of the appropriately diluted samples, the wells in the microtiter plates were filled with 1/300 TSB (tryptic soy broth, Difco) diluted in PBS. Staddon J.M. The merA and merB transgenic plants can also efficiently remove mercury from soil. The 10th cycle was followed by 7 min at 72°C [24]. The total mercury content of the soil samples was negatively correlated to the distance from the center of contamination . Campbell This extract was diluted to obtain a cell density (estimated by direct counting after staining with Acridine Orange) of approximately 4×105 cells ml−1. The 4-methylumbelliferone (4-MU) released upon chitinase-induced hydrolysis was quantified fluorometrically using a luminescence spectrometer (Perkin Elmer) (at 446 nm emission and 377 nm excitation). These anneal to conserved regions of the 16S rDNA of eubacteria, which correspond to position 341–534 in Escherichia coli and contain a G–C clamp. When a soil is contaminated with heavy metals it is difficult to be remediated. (, De Leij Trevors Some ecosystems and species are more sensitive to mercury contamination, and local environmental conditions are important factors influencing the creation and transfer of methylmercury through the food web. The percentage of the total variation explained by each principal component is given in parentheses. B. The results suggest that mercury can drive co-selection of ARGs in contaminated non-agricultural soils over five years of aging which is linked to soil microbiota shift and metal chemistry in the soil. Turner For bacterial counts (CFU), 1 g of soil was diluted in 10 ml phosphate-buffered saline (PBS; autoclaved solution of 1.44 g l−1 Na2HPO4.2H2O, 0.24 g l−1 KH2PO4, 8.00 g l−1 NaCl and 0.20 g l−1 KCl in distilled water) and vortexed at maximum velocity for 1 min. The distribution pattern was most even in the soil with the lowest mercury concentration (soil A) and became more uneven at higher mercury concentrations. The community DNA extracted from the soil was amplified using the primer sequences described by Muyzer et al. The soil differs significantly from the others (t-test; P<0.05). Mercury present in soil or water can be detoxified by microbes by undergoing reduction. Thereafter followed 10 cycles at the annealing temperature of 55°C. Especially relevant are species such as Pseudomonas, Escherichia, … Although the highest levels of inorganic mercury in soil are found in forested areas, the highest levels of methylmercury in fish and wildlife tend to occur in more arid regions of the West such as the Great … in or around the natural gas manometer station and/or to reduce the mercury contamination in soil to levels that are deemed to be adequately protective of human health. Mercury contamination in soil, tailing and plants on agricultural fields near closed gold mine Journal of Degraded and Mining Lands Management 1029 The soils were air dried for one week and passed through a 2-mm sieve prior to laboratory analyses to obtain soil fertility profile. T. mercury sensitivity and the quality and amount of available food. Although only few studies have investigated the effects of pollutants on the overall genetic structure and diversity of the whole bacterial community, the findings indicate that exposure to heavy metals alters the bacterial community's genetic structure and diversity. Polymerization of the denaturing gel and stacking gel solutions was induced by adding TEMED (Bio-Rad) (denaturing gel: 0.5 μl ml−1; stacking gel: 5 μl ml−1) and 10% ammonium persulfate (5 μl ml−1) immediately before casting. • Mercury is naturally attenuated in soil following long-term ageing. Duplicate soil samples (about 5 g) were used to determine the water content and loss on ignition by weighing the samples fresh, dried (80°C overnight) and ashed (550°C for 3 h). Mercury in the food chain is a universally recognized health hazard. The band with the highest intensity in soil C is indicated by an arrow. 4Z). The number of protozoa differed significantly between the soils (Table 2). E.V. The reduced microbial biomass at the most contaminated site (soil C) is in agreement with many other investigations of the effect of long-term exposure to heavy metals [3]. Soils vary in type and consistency; mercury commonly is found very close to the surface. A. In our investigation, fungal biomass measured as chitinase activity was not significantly altered in the presence of enhanced soil mercury levels. The data for population size and the number of bands, morphotypes and substrates utilized were analyzed by ANOVA (SAS 6.12 for Windows). In contrast, species composition and diversity of the culturable bacterial population was not affected by exposure to heavy metals soils subjected to the long-term application of sewage sludge compared to control soil [6]. natural component of the soil (Roulet et al ., 1998). Protecting our soil and food from mercury contamination. Only a small part of the total mercury was bioavailable in soil C (0.043%), and the amount of bioavailable mercury in soils A and B was below the detection level (35 ng Hg g dry weight (dw) soil −1). (, Barkay Mercury Contamination - Past, Present, and Future . 1) revealed that in all soil samples most of the colonies appeared within a few days of plating. (, Knight (, Jonasson A.M. Kelly Soil C could nevertheless be separated from the two other soils by PCA. By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. Microbial biomass was measured with the chloroform fumigation-extraction method, whereby a fumigated and an unfumigated soil subsample are analyzed for organic carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) [14]. The natural abundance of mercury in most soils is usually quite low (0.08 ppm)1; however, elevated levels of mercury may be found in areas where gold mining, clor-alkali production or paper manufacture has taken place. Mercury may occur in the environment in several forms (fig. Mercury (Hg) isotope ratios were determined in two sediment cores collected from two adjacent reservoirs in Guizhou, China, including Hongfeng Reservoir and Baihua Reservoir. Department of General Microbiology, University of Copenhagen, Sølvgade 83 H, DK-1307 Copenhagen K, Denmark. K. Thus the structure of the culturable microbial community was altered at even low mercury concentrations, although the number of morphotypes only decreased at the highest mercury concentration. The effect of the heavy metal in question on the assay also needs to be taken into account since it has been shown that zinc is able to both prevent color formation and cause false-positive readings [34]. Bacterial cells for inoculation of Ecoplates® (Biolog Inc., Hayward, CA, USA) were extracted from soil by homogenizing 10 g of soil in 100 ml sterile water for 1 min in a Warring blender followed by 1 min cooling on ice and further blending for 1 min. The polymerase was added after a hotstart procedure (94°C in 5 min). Soils were spiked with increasing concentrations of inorganic Hg and left to age for 5 years. The number of DGGE bands differed significantly between the three soils, and was highest in soil A and lowest in soil C. The number of substrates utilized on Ecoplates® did not differ significantly between the soils. The number of fast-growing protozoa was determined on wells in which protozoa had been detected after 1 week, while the total number was determined on all wells in which protozoa were detected. Microbial C and N – which includes fungal biomass [31]– was lowest in the most contaminated soil, however, although there was no indication of a shift towards a fungi-dominated soil system, fungi generally having a higher C/N ratio than bacteria. If different cell extracts from each soil had been used, the variation would probably have been even greater [4]. M. A. Whole-community DNA was extracted from 0.5 g of soil using a bead-beating method (FastDNA SPIN Kit (for soil), Bio 101 Inc., USA) according to the manufacturer's instructions. The color development rank curves for substrate utilization were similar in all three soils (data not shown). In many relatively pristine areas, however, mercury concentrations have actually increased because atmospheric deposition has increased. Overall, the soil microbial community was significantly altered in the soil with the highest concentration of mercury as evidenced by the reduction in the size of the various populations in soil C compared to soils A and B. It has been identified as a priority E. R. L. The three soils differed slightly with regard to pH and range of organic matter content (Table 1). Moreover, they affect all groups of organisms and ecosystem processes, including microbially mediated processes [1–3]. There is a need for cost-effective mercury treatment. Innovative Approaches to Mercury Contamination in Soil U.S. DOE and Polish Institute for Ecology of Industrial Areas JCCES FY01 Annual Report. For typing of colony morphology, 100 μl samples of appropriate soil dilutions were spread on TSA (tryptic soy agar) plates supplemented with fungicide (25 μg natamycin ml−1) to achieve 30–100 colonies on each plate after 4 days of incubation at 25°C. Based on the number of colony morphotypes, moreover, the culturable bacterial population was structurally less diverse and contained a higher proportion of resistant and fast-growing forms. E. vegetation level and soil structure. The researchers had reason to be alarmed. Only a small part of the total mercury was bioavailable in soil C (0.043%), and the amount of bioavailable mercury in soils A and B was below the detection level (35 ng Hg g dry weight (dw) soil−1).
