The Relationship Study of Biomass, Situation, and Artificial Control: the Degradation of NP Using Estuary-Derived Fungi
Cultural situation generally played a crucial role on biodegradation mechanism establishment of pollutant. Extensive studies had focused on the optimization of cultivation environment based on in situ conditions. However, there were still few reports on the effects of artificial control on microbial growth and degradation. In this work, the relationship of biomass, situation, and artificial control was explored through the biodegradation of nonylphenols as standard containments by four trains named A. niger, A. terreus SHPP01, A. terreus NIH2624, and T. aff. harzianum from the estuary sediment of Jiaozhou Bay. Various culture conditions covering mineral salt medium, glucose synergistic medium, and carbon rich complex medium had been used to quest the relationship. As a conclusion, different strains usually showed different mechanisms within the same media. The correlation ship between biomass and degradation and removal rate was positive, and the natural medium was usually the best choice for microbial study in situ simulation. Hence, our study provided a valuable reference for the realization of more efficient and rapid biodegradation of pollutants.
