Identification of the intracellular polyhydroxyalkanoate depolymerase gene of Paracoccus denitrificans and some properties of the gene product.

Abstract

Paracoccus denitrificans degraded poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB) in the cells under carbon source starvation. Intracellular poly(3-hydroxyalkanoate) (PHA) depolymerase gene (phaZ) was identified near the PHA synthase gene (phaC) of P. denitrificans. Cell extract of Escherichia coli carrying lacZ--phaZ fusion gene degraded protease-treated PHB granules… (More)
