Rhodococcus, a metabolically flexible actinobacteria that's often present in the surroundings, has won expanding curiosity because of its strength biotechnological functions. This Microbiology Monographs quantity presents a radical evaluate of a few of the elements of the biochemistry, body structure and genetics of the Genus Rhodococcus.
Following an outline of its taxonomy, chapters hide the structural points of rhodococcal mobile envelope, genomes and plasmids, metabolic and catabolic pathways, similar to these of fragrant compounds, steroids and nitriles, and desulfurization pathways, in addition to the adaption to natural solvents. extra stories speak about functions of Rhodococcus within the bioremediation of infected environments, in triacylglycerol accumulation, and in phytopathogenic recommendations, in addition to the potential for biosurfactants. a last bankruptcy describes the only real pathogenic Rhodococcus member, R. equi.
