Production of poly-3-hydroxybutyrate by Bacillus sp. JMa5 cultivated in molasses media
It seems that sporulation induced by reduced supply of nutrients is the reason that PHB content is generally low in the Bacillus sp.
Comparative genomics study of polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) and ectoine relevant genes from Halomonas sp. TD01 revealed extensive horizontal gene transfer events and co-evolutionary relationships
The accessibility of genome information would facilitate research on the genetic engineering of halophilic bacteria including Halomonas sp.
Biosynthesis and characterization of poly(3-hydroxydodecanoate) by β-oxidation inhibited mutant of Pseudomonas entomophila L48.
In this study, some of the genes encoding key enzymes in β-oxidation cycle of P. entomophila such as 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase, 3-ketoacyl -CoA thiolase, and acetyl- coA acetyltransferase were deleted to study the relationship between β-Oxidation and PHA synthesis in P. entrants.
Polyhydroxyalkanoate synthases PhaC1 and PhaC2 from Pseudomonas stutzeri 1317 had different substrate specificities.
The sequence analysis results of the phaC1Ps, PhaC2Ps and phaZPs showed high homology to the corresponding pha loci of the known Pseudomonas strains, respectively, showing different substrate specificities when expressed in E. coli.
Hyperproduction of poly(4-hydroxybutyrate) from glucose by recombinant Escherichia coli
Significant level of poly( 4HB) biosynthesis from glucose can be achieved in sad and gabD genes deficient strain of E. coli, demonstrating the feasibility for enhanced poly(4HB) production using the recombinant strain for future cost effective commercial development.
Halophiles, coming stars for industrial biotechnology.
