Quantification of Bacterial Polyhydroxybutyrate Content by Flow Cytometry
(Bio-Protocol LLC, 2017-12)
We describe here a detailed protocol for the quantification of the intracellular content of polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) in a population of bacterial cells by flow cytometry, which is based on a consensus of several previously ...
The Influence of Cooper and Chromium Ions on the Production of Exopolysaccharide and Polyhydroxybutyrate by Rhizobium tropici LBMP-C01
The influence of bivalent copper (Cu 2+ ) and hexavalent chromium (Cr 6+ ) ions on exopolysaccharide (EPS) and polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) production by the bacterium Rhizobium tropici LBMP-C01 was investigated. The partial ...
Nutrient optimization for production of polyhydroxybutyrate from halotolerant photosynthetic bacteria cultivated under aerobic-dark condition
(Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, 2008)
Cloning and overexpression of the xylose isomerase gene from Burkholderia sacchari and production of polyhydroxybutyrate from xylose
(NATL RESEARCH COUNCIL CANADA-N R C RESEARCH PRESS, 2009)
A different organization for the xyl operon was found in different genomes of Burkholderia and Pseudomomas species. Degenerated primers were designed based on Burkholderia genomes and used to amplify the xylose isomerase ...
Polyhydroxybutyrate-based nanocomposites with cellulose nanocrystals and bacterial cellulose
Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) films nanoreinforced with hydrolyzed cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) and bacterial cellulose (BC) were prepared by solvent casting. The influence of different cellulose nanoparticles content (2, 4 ...
Properties and processing relationship of polyhydroxybutyrate and cellulose biocomposites
The aim of this work was the development of totally biodegradable composites for using as packaging in food and agriculture industry. Optimum conditions to obtain bilayer composites from polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) and ...
Use of polyhydroxybutyrate and ethyl cellulose for coating of urea granules
Fertilizers contain essential nutrients for agricultural growth and development. However, most nitrogen fertilizers are substances with high solubility of ions and are very susceptible to leaching and volatilization. To ...
