  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs), biopolyesters of hydroxyl fatty acids, are synthesized and deposited as cytoplasmic inclusions in many bacteria. We isolated a poly-beta-hydroxybutyrate (PHB)-producing bacterium designated Rhodobacter sphaeroides FJ1. To characterize PHB biosynthesis in this organism, we isolated the genes encoding proteins involved in PHB metabolism. METHODS The genes responsible for the synthesis, accumulation, and degradation of PHB in R. sphaeroides… CONTINUE READING
