Activity of methanogens. T-RFLP analysis of mcrA transcripts (cDNA amplicons) using BstNI as restriction enzyme. a Before and after the discontinuous feeding event for Experiment 1 compared to the VFA concentration during a daily feeding interval and b Rdisco for all experiments as well as Rconti as control. “Ambiguous on family level” stands for Methanocorpusculaceae, Methanomicrobiaceae, Methanoregulaceae, and Methanospirillaceae, which cannot be distinguished by this T-RFLP analysis. Other T-RFs are marked in shades of gray
