The glyoxylate shunt is essential for CO2-requiring oligotrophic growth of Rhodococcus erythropolis N9T-4


Rhodococcus erythropolis N9T-4 shows extremely oligotrophic growth requiring atmospheric CO2 and forms its colonies on an inorganic basal medium (BM) without any additional carbon source. Screening of a random mutation library constructed by a unique genome deletion method that we established indicated that the aceA, aceB, and pckG genes encoding isocitrate… (More)
