Fluoroquinolones (FQs), such as ciprofloxacin (CIP) and norfloxacin (NOR), are types of emerging trace pollutants that have attracted great attention. In this study, an activated sludge (AS) consortium with high bio-removal capability to CIP and NOR was obtained by acclimating with CIP and NOR for 10 d. Meanwhile, a CIP- and NOR- transforming bacterial strain (S5), which is highly homologous to the 16S rRNA gene sequence of Enterobacter sp. Read More
