ketothiolase, acetoacetyl-CoA reductase, and PHB synthase. These enzymes are encoded by phbA, phbB, Alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) is primarily used as a source of forage and phbC, respectively (Slater et al., 1988). The monoand animal feed. Improving the economic value of alfalfa could be achieved by developing new uses of this perennial crop. To investigate meric composition of PHA polymers is determined by the potential of alfalfa as a source of industrial materials, we employed the substrate… CONTINUE READING
