Poly-(R)-3-hydroxybutyrate and the pioneering work of Rosetta Natoli Reusch.

  • Published 2005 in Cellular and molecular biology


In investigating genetic competence, Reusch and collaborators have found that the concentration of short chain poly-(R)-3-hydroxybutyrate (PHB) and polyphosphate (polyP) complexes increases with genetic transformability and that interrupting DNA uptake yields single-stranded donor DNA complexed with short chain PHB. This would be consistent with the organic… (More)
