The cellular PHB content was determined in 137 strains of cyanobacteria representing 88 species in 26 genera under six photoautotrophic nutrient conditions. One hundred and thirty-four strains were PHB producers. The PHB contents of these 134 strains were subtle under normal growth condition, but were significantly increased in 63 strains under nitrogen deprivation (-N), a higher frequency than with phosphate and/or potassium and all-nutrient deprivation. A high PHB accumulation was not… CONTINUE READING
