Polyester Biosynthesis Characteristics of Pseudomonas citronellolis Grown on Various Carbon Sources, Including 3-Methyl-Branched Substrates.


Forty-two different carbon sources were tested for the polyester synthesis of a citronellol-utilizing bacterium, Pseudomonas citronellolis (ATCC 13674). These included linear C(2) to C(10) monocarboxylic acids, C(3) to C(10) dicarboxylic acids, saccharides, alpha,omega-diols, hydrocarbons, and 3-methyl-branched substrates such as 3,7-dimethyl-6-octen-1-ol… (More)
