As the most representative biodegradable thermoplastic, poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (P3HB) has a limited range of applications because of its poor thermal and physical properties. To improve its properties, a novel biosynthetic system was designed to produce poly(3-hydroxypropionate-co-3-hydroxybutyrate) (P(3HP-co-3HB)) with fully controllable structures from inexpensive carbon source. In this system, two parallel synthetic pathways controlled by independent regulatory systems were used to produce… CONTINUE READING
