Forschungsschwerpunkte
Die wissenschaftlichen Untersuchungen des Arbeitskreises befassen sich mit dem Stoffwechsel von Biopolymeren in Mikroorganismen sowie mit der Entstehung und Struktur von Einschlüssen hydrophober Speicherstoffe in Bakterienzellen. Dabei werden bevorzugt solche Biopolymere und Speicherstoffe in die Untersuchungen einbezogen, die interessante Eigenschaften aufweisen und für technische Anwendungen in der Industrie und/oder Medizin geeignet sind. Es handelt sich hierbei z. B. um Polyester, Polythioester, Polyamide und Polyisoprenoide sowie um Triglyceride und Wachsester. Ein Ziel ist es die Biosynthese dieser und hiervon angeleiteter Verbindungen in Mikroorganismen auf physiologischer, biochemischer und molekularer Ebene zu verstehen, die an der Bioynthese beteiligten Schlüsselenzyme zu identifizieren und charakterisieren und die gewonnenen Erkenntnisse zur Etablierung neuer oder verbesserter biotechnologischer Produktionsprozesse zu nutzen. Dadurch sollen Beiträge geleistet werden, diese Verbindungen bevorzugt aus nachwachsenden Rohstoffen oder Reststoffen von Industrie bzw. Landwirtschaft produzieren zu können. Neben der Biosynthese der genannten Verbindungen wird auch deren mikrobieller Abbau untersucht.
