    Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) Database: Genomics of Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) Biosynthesis
    Author(s): Alamgeer M*

    Plastics are the most widely used synthetic polymers. Due to their non-degradative nature, synthetic polymers have become an environmental eyesore. Biodegradable plastics like Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) comprise a group of natural biodegradable polyesters that are synthesized by microorganisms. Polyhydroxyalkanoates were firstly discovered in prokaryotes as carbon and energy storage materials. Plastics are utilized in almost every sector. Plastics being xenobiotic are recalcitrant to microbial degradation. Polyhydroxyalkanoates have gained major importance due to their structural diversity and close analogy to plastics. Polyhydroxyalkanoates have promising properties such as high biodegradability in different environments. Polyhydroxyalkanoates can be degraded by many microorganisms using intracellular or extracellular PHA depolymerases. PHA depolymerases.. Read More»
