The ability of Alcaligenes eutrophus to grow and produce polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) on plant oils was evaluated. When olive oil, corn oil, or palm oil was fed as a sole carbon source, the wild-type strain of A. eutrophus grew well and accumulated poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) homopolymer up to approximately 80% (w/w) of the cell dry weight during its stationary growth phase. In addition, a recombinant strain of A. eutrophus PHB−4 (a PHA-negative mutant), harboring a PHA synthase gene from Aeromonas… CONTINUE READING
