By Héctor M. Alvarez

Rhodococcus, a metabolically flexible actinobacteria that is usually present in the surroundings, has won expanding curiosity because of its power biotechnological purposes. This Microbiology Monographs quantity presents a radical assessment of a number of the elements of the biochemistry, body structure and genetics of the Genus Rhodococcus.
Following an outline of its taxonomy, chapters hide the structural features of rhodococcal mobile envelope, genomes and plasmids, metabolic and catabolic pathways, corresponding to these of fragrant compounds, steroids and nitriles, and desulfurization pathways, in addition to the adaption to natural solvents. additional stories talk about purposes of Rhodococcus within the bioremediation of infected environments, in triacylglycerol accumulation, and in phytopathogenic suggestions, in addition to the potential for biosurfactants. a last bankruptcy describes the only pathogenic Rhodococcus member, R. equi.
