Isolated DNA fragments encoding a Rhodospirillum rubrum (ATCC 25903) polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) synthase, or biologically functional equivalents thereof, are provided. Also provided is the deduced amino acid sequence of the R. rubrum PHA synthase. These molecules are useful in the production of PHAs in bacteria and plants.
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] An isolated DNA molecule, comprising a nucleotide sequence elected from the group consisting of:(a) the nucleotide sequence of the coding strand shown in SEQ ID NO:1, or the complement thereof;(b) a nucleotide sequence that hybridizes to said nucleotide sequence of (a) under a wash stringency equivalent to 0.5.times. SSC to 2.times. SSC, 0.1% SDS, at 55.degree.-65.degree. C., and which encodes an enzyme having Rhodospirillum rubrum poly-.beta.-hydroxyalkanoate synthase enzymatic activity;(c) a nucleotide sequence encoding the ...
