Hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX) is a widely used explosive and a serious environmental pollutant. Nineteen strains of Rhodococcus spp. capable of utilizing RDX as the sole nitrogen source have been isolated. The cytochrome P450 system XplA-XplB, which is responsible for RDX breakdown, is present in 18 of these strains.
