Studies have been carried out in order to optimize growth and culture conditions for the intracellular formation of poly(beta-hydroxyalkanoates) (PHA) in the phototrophic, purple, non-sulphur… Expand
Visualization of the supramolecular architecture of chlorosomes (chlorobium type vesicles) in freeze-fractured cells of Chloroflexus aurantiacus
Freeze-fracture electron microscopy has been used to investigate the size, form, distribution and supramolecular organization of chlorosomes (chlorobium type vesicles) in Chloroflexus aurantiacus… Expand
Production of unusual bacterial polyesters by Pseudomonas oleovorans through cometabolism
Abstract Pseudomonas oleovorans is an adaptable, aerobic bacterium that can produce a wide range of storage polyesters (poly-β-hydroxyalkanoates, PHAs). With few exceptions, the PHAs obtained when… Expand
The accumulation of poly(3-hydroxyalkanoates) in Rhodobacter sphaeroides
In recent years industrial interest has been focussed on the evaluation of poly(3-hydroxyalkanoates) (PHA) as potentially biodegradable plastics for a wide range of technical applications. Studies… Expand
Menaquinone is the sole quinone in the facultatively aerobic green photosynthetic bacterium Chloroflexus aurantiacus
Abstract The role of quinones was investigated in Chloroflexus aurantiacus, a thermophilic green bacterium capable of photosynthetic or respiratory growth. Thin-layer chromatography, ultraviolet… Expand
A unique photosynthetic reaction center from Heliobacterium chlorum
A previously unknown type of photosynthetic reaction center in the brownish‐green bacterium Heliobacterium chlorum is described. The reaction center is tightly bound in a highly proteinaceous… Expand
Production of unsaturated polyesters by Pseudomonas oleovorans.
Pseudomonas oleovorans was grown separately on 3-hydroxy-6-octenoic acid and 3-hydroxy-7-octenoic acid as the only carbon source and under ammonium nutrient-limiting conditions to produce storage… Expand
Bacterial polyesters containing branched poly(β-hydroxyalkanoate) units
Abstract Pseudomonas oleovorans was grown on mixtures of methyloctanoates with n-octanoate. Polymers were also obtained from organisms grown on pure 7-methyloctanoate, but not from pure 5- or… Expand
