This research article reports halophilic and halotolerant bacteria isolated from mangrove forests located in Northern Vietnam. Several of these bacteria were able to synthesize polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs). PHAs are polyesters stored by microorganisms under the presence of considerable amounts of a carbon source and deficiency of other essential nutrient(More)
Yangia sp. ND199, a moderate halophile isolated from mangrove soil sample in Vietnam, was found to accumulate poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate) (PHBV) from unrelated carbon sources in a medium with 4.5% (w/v) NaCl. Cultivation with glycerol as carbon source and yeast extract as nitrogen source resulted in maximum cell dry weight of 5.7 g/l and(More)
