Abstract Published pmoA primers do not match the pmoA sequence of "Candidatus Methylomirabilis oxyfera," a bacterium that performs nitrite-dependent anaerobic methane oxidation. Therefore, new pmoA primers for the detection of "Ca. Methylomirabilis oxyfera" -like methanotrophs were developed and successfully tested on freshwater samples from different habitats. These primers expand existing molecular tools for the study of methanotrophs in the environment.
