Methods for engineering transgenic organisms that synthesize polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) containing 3-hydroxyhexanoate as comonomer have been developed. These processes are based on genetically engineered bacteria such as Escherichia coli or in plant crops as production systems which include PHA biosynthetic genes from PHA producers. In a preferred embodiment of the method, additional genes are introduced in wild type or transgenic polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) producers, thereby creating new strains that synthesize 3HH monomers which are incorporated into ...
We claim: 1. A method for the biological production of polyhydroxyalkanoates containing 3-hydroxyhexanoate in plants, comprising synthesizing the polyhydroxyalkanoate in plants expressing an enzyme selected from the group consisting of PHB polymerase, PHA polymerase, and β-ketoacyl-CoA reductase, wherein the plants are genetically engineered by integration into the chromosome of one or more genes encoding one or more enzymes forming a fatty acid oxidation complex, wherein the fatty acid oxidation complex comprises enzymes selected from the group co...
