. Inactivation of an intracellular poly-3-hydroxybutyrate depolymerase of Azotobacter vinelandii allows to obtain a polymer of uniform high molecular mass. Appl Microbiol Biotechnol. 2018;102:2693-2707 pubmed publisher
..These results suggest that PhbZ1 has a role in the degradation of PHB in cultures in bioreactors and its inactivation allows the production of a polymer of a uniform high molecular weight. ..
Segura D, Vite O, Romero Y, Moreno S, Castañeda M, Espín G. Isolation and characterization of Azotobacter vinelandii mutants impaired in alkylresorcinol synthesis: alkylresorcinols are not essential for cyst desiccation resistance. J Bacteriol. 2009;191:3142-8 pubmed publisher
..These data indicate that ARs play a structural role in the exine layer of the cysts, but they are not essential for either cyst formation or for desiccation resistance. ..
