Increasing the carbon flux toward synthesis of short-chain-length--medium-chain-length polyhydroxyalkanoate in the peroxisome of Saccharomyces cerevisiae through modification of the beta-oxidation cycle.
Applied and Environmental Microbiology
Short-chain-length-medium-chain-length polyhydroxyalkanoates were synthesized in Saccharomyces cerevisiae from intermediates of the beta-oxidation cycle by expressing the polyhydroxyalkanoate synthases from Aeromonas caviae and Ralstonia eutropha in the peroxisomes. The quantity of polymer produced was increased by using a mutant of the beta-oxidation-associated multifunctional enzyme with low dehydrogenase activity toward R-3-hydroxybutyryl coenzyme A.
