Additional Information: <p align="justify">The present work was based on the utilization of antisense technology to regulate the expression of PHA synthase gene from Pseudomonas aeruginosa.The present antisensing work provides evidence for the differential regulation/expression of PHA synthase in glucose and octanoate media as demonstrated by earlier workers (Chen, et al., 2004) The results obtained in this experiment supports the concept that both phaC1and phaC2 have separate promoter, specific function and are not interchangeable. It is a better tool to determine the function of a gene rather than gene disruption because in later technique there is complete silencing of gene, which has its own limitations while antisensing provides degree of silencing. This work is also showing deviation in the composition of PHA from the native one (non-recombinant) so this technique can be used in production of modified PHA. Promoter antisensing is a novel and unique approach, which can be used in the development of ribo-switches for better control on gene expression.The use of promoter for silencing the expression of a gene requires further confirmation.</p>
