Construction of pha-operon-defined knockout mutants of Pseudomonas putida KT2442 and their applications in poly(hydroxyalkanoate) production.

Pseudomonas putida KT2442 could accumulate medium-chain-length poly(hydroxyalkanoate)s (PHA) consisting of 3-hydroxyhexanoate, 3-hydroxyoctanoate, 3-hydroxydecanoate, and 3-hydroxydodecanoate from a wide range of carbon sources. In this study, the PHA synthase pha operon (phaC1-phaZ-phaC2) was knocked out and the vgb gene encoding vitreoscilla hemoglobin… CONTINUE READING
