Description

The genus Nocardioides are nocardioform actinomycetes, which are morphologically heterogenous. Cells of Nocardioides species are often irregular short rods, however some spp. can form well developed mycelia 5 6. Rod-cocci morphogenesis can occur in some spp. where coccoid cells or short rods develop into rods or short filaments 6. Nocardioides are aerobic, chemoorganotrophs which can also grow chemolithotrophically 6. Some Nocardioides species are able to degrade complex substrates including common toxic environmental pollutants and aromatic compounds 6. The in situ physiology of the genus in activated sludge has not been determined.
