    The enzymes of nitrile catabolism in Rhodococcus include nitrilases and nitrile hydratases/amidase systems. According to their cofactor, nitrile hydratases are classified into Fe-type and Co-type subfamilies, which are typically produced by Rhodococcus erythropolis and Rhodococcus rhodochrous, respectively. The latter species is also the typical source of nitrilases, most of which strongly prefer aromatic substrates. The organization of the nitrilase, nitrile hydratase, amidase and relevant regulatory genes, and mechanisms of their expression control are shown. The unique structural and physico-chemical properties of these enzymes (subunit aggregation, Fe-type nitrile hydratase photoreactivity) are described. The overview of nitrile-converting enzyme applications emphasizes their use in the biodegradation of aliphatic nitriles and benzonitrile herbicides
