Synthetic Biology Products of PhaBuilder
Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA)
It is an intracellular polyester synthesized in many bacteria. It has broad application prospects in biodegradable packaging materials, tissue engineering materials, sustained-release materials, electrical materials and medical materials.
Carotenoids are a general term for a class of important natural pigments, which are commonly found in the yellow, orange-red or red pigments of animals, higher plants, fungi, and algae.
Tetrahydropyrimidine, also known as ectoine, can protect halophilic bacteria from damage under extreme conditions of high saline, high temperature and high ultraviolet radiation. At present, ectoine is used as one of the bioengineering agents in high-grade cosmetics.
3-Hydroxypropionic acid
Through oxidation, dehydration, esterification, etc., 3-hydroxypropionic acid can be synthesized into many important chemicals, such as acrylic acid, malonic acid, and biodegradable plastic poly- 3-hydroxypropionic acid. It can also be used as an additive and preservative for food or feed.
Lysine is an amino acid and an indispensable nutrient that human need. Lysine is also a key substance to help other nutrients be fully absorbed and utilized by the body, helping to improve the absorption and utilization of food protein.
L-Threonine is mainly used as a nutritional supplement. When heated with glucose, it is easy to produce burnt fragrance and chocolate fragrance, which has a fragrance enhancing effect.
It is mainly used to produce polyamide, such as nylon 56, nylon 510, etc; It is also used in the synthesis of diisocyanates and as curing agents and organic crosslinking agents for urea formaldehyde resins and epoxy resins.
Also known as cyclohexanol, it is widely distributed in animals and plants and is a growth factor for animals and microorganisms. It was first isolated from myocardium and liver.
