(2007) observed difference in anoxic P-uptake and proposed hypothesis that different Accumulibacter clades have different metabolic capabilities . *** Flowers et al., (2009) confirmed that two different clades have affinities to nitrate: type I Accumulibacter, hereafter refered as PAOI , seems having the ability to denitrify using nitrate, contrary to Type II Accumulibacter, hereafter PAOII . Although anoxic conditions with nitrate seems to favor PAOI over PAOII, they seem be able to co-exist.
