Rhodococcus, a metabolically flexible actinobacteria that's often present in the surroundings, has received expanding curiosity as a result of its strength biotechnological functions. This Microbiology Monographs quantity offers a radical overview of a few of the points of the biochemistry, body structure and genetics of the Genus Rhodococcus.
Following an outline of its taxonomy, chapters hide the structural facets of rhodococcal mobile envelope, genomes and plasmids, metabolic and catabolic pathways, equivalent to these of fragrant compounds, steroids and nitriles, and desulfurization pathways, in addition to the adaption to natural solvents. additional studies talk about purposes of Rhodococcus within the bioremediation of infected environments, in triacylglycerol accumulation, and in phytopathogenic thoughts, in addition to the possibility of biosurfactants. a last bankruptcy describes the only real pathogenic Rhodococcus member, R. equi.

The evolutionary origins of hydrogenosomes were the topic of substantial debate. This quantity closes the distance among the endosymbiotic conception for the starting place of organelles and their incorporation into evolutionary concept. It finds that picking out the genetic contribution to eukaryotes of the mitochondrial endosymbiosis, and revealing the services of its descendent organelles, are key to knowing eukaryotic biology and evolution.
