Microbial community structure with trends in methylation gene diversity and abundance in mercury-contaminated rice paddy soils in Guizhou, China

Samples of mercury and methylmercury soils in Guizhou, China, as well as Bacterial and Archaeal community composition were tested to determine total mercury and methylmercury concentrations, as well as Bacterial and Archaeal community composition. With increasing THg and MeHg levels, the Bacterial -diversity was present in samples with relatively low THg and MeHg, but with increasing THg and MeHg levels, decreasing with increasing THg and MeHg concentrations. Overall, the methylation gene hgcAB copy number increased with both increasing THg and MeHg concentrations increasing. The microbial populations of High THg and High MeHg seem to have been adapted by plants that are both Hg resistant and have hgcAB genes for MeHg production.
