Biodecolorization of azo, anthraquinonic and triphenylmethane dyes by white-rot fungi and a laccase-secreting engineered strain
Abstract One laccase-secreting engineered strain and four white-rot fungi were tested for their capacity to decolorize nine dyes that could be classified as azo, anthraquinonic and triphenylmethane
Cloning of Transglutaminase Gene from Streptomyces fradiae and its Enhanced Expression in the Original Strain
Enhanced expression of the TGase was achieved by introducing another copy of TGase gene into the original host genome which was driven by the strong constitutive promoter, “ermE up”, and shown to be expressed at the mRNA and protein levels.
Biodegradation of seven polychlorinated biphenyls by a newly isolated aerobic bacterium (Rhodococcus sp. R04)
An aerobic bacterial strain, designated R04, belonging to the genus Rhodococcus has been isolated and characerized by 16S rDNA analysis and the spectrum of supernatants from R04 grown on seven PCBs had a UV-visible absorption at 200–500 nm, characteristic of biphenyl-derived cleavage products.
Purification and characterization of the enantioselective nitrile hydratase from Rhodococcus sp. AJ270
The purified NHase showed intriguing characteristics: it hydrated not only aliphatic and heterocyclic nitriles but also aromatic ones, and some substrates were also hydrated enantioselectively to the corresponding amides.
Genome Sequence of Rhodococcus sp. Strain R04, a Polychlorinated-Biphenyl Biodegrader
ABSTRACT The genus Rhodococcus has proved to be a promising option for the cleanup of polluted sites and application of a microbial biocatalyst. Rhodococcus sp. strain R04, isolated from
