Abstract:
Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) beads, recombinantly produced in Escherichia coli, were functionalized to display lipase B from Candida antarctica as translational protein fusion. The respective beads were characterized in respect to protein content, functionality, long term storage capacity and re-usability. The direct fusion of the PHA synthase, PhaC, to lipase B yielded active PHA lipase beads capable of hydrolyzing glycerol tributyrate. Lipase B beads showed stable activity over several weeks and re-usability without loss of function.
