AIM Characterization of polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) accumulated by halophilic bacteria isolated from solar salterns. METHODS AND RESULTS Twenty-six halophilic isolates were obtained from solar salterns of Goa, India. They were screened for accumulation of PHA by Sudan black B, Nile blue A and Nile red stains. Strains H15, H16 and H26 were selected based on their intensity of Nile blue A/Nile red fluorescence. On the basis of phenotypic and genotypic characterization, the three isolates were… CONTINUE READING
