Heterologous expression of the phaGPs and the phaClPs genes encoding 3-hydroxyacyl acyl carrier protein-coenzyme A transacylase and polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) synthase from Pseudomonas sp. 61-3, respectively, was performed in the phbCRe negative mutant, Ralstonia eutropha PHB-4. The recombinant strain of the R. eutropha PHB-4 produced PHA copolymers consisting of 3-hydroxybutyrate (3HB) and medium-chain-length 3-hydroxyalkanoate (mcl-3HA) units of 6-12 carbon atoms from sugars. The 3HB fraction… CONTINUE READING
