Abstract

The occurrence of poly-3-hydroxybutyric acid (PHB) in 12 different strains of the genusStreptomyces was investigated. Gas chromatographic estimation indicated that all the strains produced PHB and the range of maximum PHB accumulation was between 1.5 and 11.8% dry cell weight. PHB was isolated fromStreptomyces coelicolor A3(2) M145 and characterized using Fourier transform-infrared (FT-ER) spectroscopy. The correlation between PHB utilization and antibiotic production inS. coelicolor A3(2) Ml45, was studied; results indicated a possible role of PHB as a carbon reserve material used for antibiotic production
