Using clone libraries and qPCR, we compared the diversity and abundance of mcrA genes and transcripts in four different methanogenic hydrogen/CO2 enrichment cultures to function, as measured by specific methanogenic activity assays (SMA) using H2/CO2. The mcrA gene copy number significantly correlated with CH4 production rates using H2/CO2 while correlations between mcrA transcript number and SMA were not significant.
