Rhodococcus opacus R7 is a Gram-positive bacterium isolated from a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon contaminated soil for its versatile metabolism; indeed the strain is able to grow on naphthalene, o-xylene, and several long- and medium-chain n-alkanes. In this work we determined the degradation of n-alkanes in Rhodococcus opacus R7 in presence of n-(More)
Due to the rapid increase of waste vulcanized rubber products, the development of low-cost, efficient, and selective devulcanization processes is needed. In this paper, the devulcanization ability of Gordonia desulfuricans DSM 44462T was evaluated by a design of experiments. The aim of the experimental design was to investigate the importance of parameters(More)
In this paper comparative genome and phenotype microarray analyses of Rhodococcus sp. BCP1 and Rhodococcus opacus R7 were performed. Rhodococcus sp. BCP1 was selected for its ability to grow on short-chain n-alkanes and R. opacus R7 was isolated for its ability to grow on naphthalene and on o-xylene. Results of genome comparison, including BCP1, R7, along(More)
