Purification and characterization of a novel naphthalene dioxygenase from Rhodococcus sp. strain NCIMB12038.
We report here the characterization of the catalytic component (ISP(NAR)) of a new naphthalene dioxygenase from Rhodococcus sp. strain NCIMB12038. The genes encoding the two subunits of ISP(NAR) areExpand

The plasmid-located haloalkane dehalogenase gene from Rhodococcus rhodochrous NCIMB 13064.
The haloalkane dehalogenase (dhaA) gene from Rhodococcus rhodochrous NCIMB 13064 was cloned and sequenced. Its comparison with the previously studied dhlA gene from Xanthobacter autotrophicus GJ10Expand
