A poly[(R)-3-hydroxybutyrate] (P(3HB))-degrading marine bacterium (strain NK-1, JCM10458) was isolated from the Pacific Ocean deep-sea floor (1165 m in depth) in Japan. The organism was a motile and Gram negative, aerobic, and rod-shaped bacterium, and its DNA had a guanine-plus-cytosine content of 57.7 mol%. On the basis of several phenotypic characters and a phylogenetic analysis of the gene coding for 16S rRNA, this strain was identified as Marinobacter sp. The strain required sodium salt… CONTINUE READING
