PhaC Synthases and PHA Depolymerases: The Enzymes that Produce and Degrade Plastic

PHAs are a group of intracellular biodegradable polymer produced by (most) bacteria under unbalanced growth conditions. A series of enzymes are involved in different PHAs synthesis, however PhaC synthases are responsible for the polymerization step. PHAs are accumulated in bacterial cells from solub...
