  • The pathway of rubber (poly [cis-1,4-isoprene]) catabolism is well documented for Gram-positive rubber degraders but only little information exists for Gram-negative species. The first documented potent rubber degrading Gram-negative strain is Xanthomonas sp. strain 35Y that uses extracellular rubber oxygenases for the initial cleavage of the polyisoprene molecule. However, neither the exact phylogenetic position of Xanthomonas sp. strain 35Y nor the catabolic pathway of the primary… CONTINUE READING
