A rapidly growing marine derived Bacillus sp. strain NQ-11/A2, identified as Bacillus megaterium, accumulated 61% polyhydroxyalkanoate by weight. Diverse carbon sources served as substrates for the accumulation of short chain length polyhydroxyalkanoate. Three to nine granules either single or attached as buds could be isolated intact from each cell. Maximum activity of polyhydroxyalkanoate synthase was associated with the granules. Granule-bound polyhydroxyalkanoate synthase had a Km of 7.1… CONTINUE READING
