Fed-Batch Synthesis of Poly(3-Hydroxybutyrate) and Poly(3-Hydroxybutyrate-co-4-Hydroxybutyrate) from Sucrose and 4-Hydroxybutyrate Precursors by Burkholderia sacchari Strain DSM 17165
Thermoanalysis revealed improved material properties of the second polyester in terms of reduced melting temperature Tm and decreased degree of crystallinity Xc and decreased rate of specific growth rate µmax, indicating its enhanced suitability for polymer processing.
Pilot Scale-up of Poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-4-hydroxybutyrate) Production by Halomonas bluephagenesis via Cell Growth Adapted Optimization Process.
A stable and continuous open process for efficient low-cost production of P(3HB-co-4HB) is successfully developed coupling fermentation with the downstream extraction processing.
Biosynthetic enhancement of single-stage Poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-4-hydroxybutyrate) production by manipulating the substrate mixtures
A single-stage fermentation method which is more industrial feasible by implementing mixed-substrate cultivation strategy is demonstrated and the copolymer characteristics were found to be predominantly affected by the nature of the substrates and the mixture strategies, regardless of the 4HB monomer compositions.
The Use of Azohydromonas lata DSM 1122 to Produce 4-hydroxyvalerate-Containing Polyhydroxyalkanoate Terpolymers, and Unique Polymer Blends from Mixed-Cultures with Burkholderia sacchari DSM 17165
The results of this study show that LevA can be utilized in combination with simple sugars to produce unique scl-PHA terpolyesters and scl -PHA mixtures with enhanced properties.
Poly(4-Hydroxybutyrate): Current State and Perspectives
This review will comprehensively cover the historical evolution and the most recent publications on P4HB biosynthesis, material properties, and industrial and medical applications.


Production of poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate) P(3HB-co-3HV) with a broad range of 3HV content at high yields by Burkholderia sacchari IPT 189
A simulation of production costs considering Y3HV/prop obtained in the present work indicated that a reduction of up to 73% can be reached, approximating US$ 1.00 per kg which is closer to the value to produce P3HB from sucrose (US$ 0.75 per kg).
Microbial synthesis of poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-4- hydroxybutyrate) copolymer by Cupriavidus sp. USMAA2-4 through a two step cultivation process
A Gram negative bacterium, Cupriavidus sp. USMAA2-4 was isolated from a soil sample in Northern Peninsular of Malaysia and was able to synthesize polyhydroxyalkanoate containing 4-hydroxybutyrate

The biodegradabilities of P(3HB-co-4HB) films were studied in aqueous solutions of extracellular polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) depolymerase from Alcaligenes faecalis or of lipase from Rhizopus delemer, and the erosion rate of films by lipase increased with the 4HB fraction.
Production of Poly(3-Hydroxybutyric Acid-Co-4-Hydroxybutyric Acid) and Poly(4-Hydroxybutyric Acid) without Subsequent Degradation by Hydrogenophaga pseudoflava
It is suggested that the inability of cells to produce 3HB in the multistep culture was due to a low level of 4-hydroxybutyric acid (4HBA) dehydrogenase activity induced by long exposure to γ-butyrolactone, as is the case for a one-step culture.
Enhanced production of poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-4-hydroxybutyrate) copolymer with manipulated variables and its properties
The biocompatibility of P(3HB-co-4HB) copolymers have been shown to support the growth and proliferation of fibroblast cells and increases in the 4HB composition lowered the molecular weight of theseCopolymers.
