Isolation of Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) Producing Soil Microorganisms

Nethaji.M | S. Sheela

Abstract: Polyhydroxybutyrates (PHBs) are macromolecules synthesized by bacteria. They are inclusion bodies accumulated as reserve materials when the bacteria grow under different stress conditions. Because of their fast degradability under natural environmental conditions, PHBs are selected as alternatives for production of biodegradable plastics. The aim of this work was to isolate potential PHB producing soil bacteria and to evaluate PHB production

Keywords: Polyhydroxybutyrate, soil bacteria
