Original Abstract

Since polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) belong among the most widespread storage materials within bacteria genus, it can be assumed that the ability of PHAs accumulation represent significant advantage in the natural environments. Of course, probably the most obvious is the possibility to utilize PHAs when external carbon sources are depleted. Nevertheless, it is likely that PHAs play much more complex role in the stress response. Therefore, the aim of this work was to investigate possible influence of PHA accumulation in bacteria on physical properties of the cells and their cytoplasm with respect to possible stress survival.

Czech abstract

Polyhydroxyalkanoáty přdstavují jednu z nejrozšířenějších forem zásobních materiálů v bakteriální říši. Obecně lze předpokládat, že kromě své základní funkce zásobního materiálu také napomáhají přežití bakterií ve stresových podmínkách. Cílem této práce je odhalit některé možné mechanismy zapojení PHA do stresové odpovědi bakterií.
