The phaC1 gene codes for the medium-chain-length polyhydroxyalkanoate (mcl PHA) synthase of Pseudomonas oleovorans GPo1, which produces mcl PHA when grown in an excess of carbon source and under nitrogen limitation. In this work, we have demonstrated, by constructing a recombinant P. oleovorans strain carrying a phaC1::lacZ reporter system, that the phaC1 gene is expressed efficiently in the presence of octanoic acid while its expression is repressed when glucose or citrate is used as the… CONTINUE READING
