Production of Polyhydroxybutyrate Using Bacterial Strains

Badaik, Laxmi (2015) Production of Polyhydroxybutyrate Using Bacterial Strains. BTech thesis.



Polyhydroxybutyrate is a polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA), a polymer having a place with the polyesters classes. That areinterest as biodegradable and bio-derived plastics. The poly-3-hydroxybutyrate (P3HB) sort of PHB ispresumably the most widely recognized sort of polyhydroxyalkanoate, yet different polymers of this class are created by a mixture of life forms: these incorporate poly-4-hydroxybutyrate (P4HB), polyhydroxyvalerate (PHV), polyhydroxyhexanoate (PHH), polyhydroxyoctanoate (PHO) and their copolymers.Synbiotic sachets were obtained from general medical store and Soil was gathered from garden and screened for PHB delivering microscopic organisms. A few unidentified bacterial colonies were confined utilizing serial dilation method. Every bacterial colony was kept up in slants and liquid cultures. A lab strain of Lactobacillus was refined and kinetic studies were performed. Lactobacillus acidophilus produced PHB.
