Polyhydroxyalkanoate biosynthesis and simultaneous remotion of organic inhibitors from sugarcane bagasse hydrolysate by Burkholderia sp.
Burkholderia sp. F24, originally isolated from soil, was capable of growth on xylose and removed organic inhibitors present in a hemicellulosic hydrolysate and simultaneously producedExpand

A non-naturally-occurring P(3HB-co-3HAMCL) is produced by recombinant Pseudomonas sp. from an unrelated carbon source.
Pseudomonas sp. PHA- was used as host for PHA biosynthesis genes from Aeromonas sp. to produce 3HB-co-3HAMCL from glucose with no supply of co-substrates. A non-naturally-occurring PHA composedExpand

Cloning and overexpression of the xylose isomerase gene from Burkholderia sacchari and production of polyhydroxybutyrate from xylose.
A different organization for the xyl operon was found in different genomes of Burkholderia and Pseudomomas species. Degenerated primers were designed based on Burkholderia genomes and used to amplifyExpand

Role of CcpA in Polyhydroxybutyrate Biosynthesis in a Newly Isolated Bacillus sp. MA3.3
The ccpA gene was inactivated in the polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB)-producing strain Bacillus sp. MA3.3 in order to reduce glucose catabolite repression over pentoses and develop improved bacterialExpand

Engineering xylose metabolism for production of polyhydroxybutyrate in the non-model bacterium Burkholderia sacchari
BackgroundDespite its ability to grow and produce high-value molecules using renewable carbon sources, two main factors must be improved to use Burkholderia sacchari as a chassis for bioproduction atExpand

Disruption of the 2-methylcitric acid cycle and evaluation of poly-3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate biosynthesis suggest alternate catabolic pathways of propionate in Burkholderia sacchari.
The objective of the present work was to evaluate the relevance of the 2-methylcitric acid cycle (2MCC) to the catabolism of propionate in Burkholderia sacchari. Two B. sacchari mutants unable toExpand
