Pseudomonas oleovorans as a Source of Poly(beta-Hydroxyalkanoates) for Potential Applications as Biodegradable Polyesters.
Pseudomonas oleovorans was grown in homogeneous media containing n-alkanoic acids, from formate to decanoate, as the sole carbon sources. Formation of intracellular poly(beta-hydroxyalkanoates) wasExpand

Ability of the phototrophic bacterium Rhodospirillum rubrum to produce various poly (beta-hydroxyalkanoates): potential sources for biodegradable polyesters.
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-sulphurExpand

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 aurantiacusExpand

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 whenExpand

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. StudiesExpand

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 storageExpand

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- orExpand
