The production and characterization of polyhydroxyalkanoic acids (PHAs) from glucose in Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 9027 is described. We determined that the synthesis of PHAs was not due to a complete lack of nitrogen source, as previously reported for other microorganisms. The synthesis of PHAs was observed during exponential growth and it depended on the carbon/nitrogen ratio in the culture. More significantly, the specific PHA accumulation rate in this phase was higher than that observed in… CONTINUE READING
