MetaCyc Compound Class: a poly-β-hydroxybutyrate

Synonyms: poly-3-hydroxybutyrate, PHB, polyhydroxybutyrate, 2-methyl-3-ketobutyrate, poly-hydroxybutyrate

Superclasses: a secondary metabolite
an ester a poly[(R)-3-hydroxyalkanoate]

Summary:
During enzymatic polymerization the ester bond in this polymer is derived from the hydroxyl group of the (R)-3-hydroxybutanoyl moiety of (R)-3-hydroxybutanoyl-CoA [Jia01].

SMILES: CC(O[R])CC(=O)OC(C)CC(=O)OC(C)CC([O-])=O

Unification Links: KEGG:C06143 , Wikipedia:Polyhydroxybutyrate

Reactions known to consume the compound:

polyhydroxybutyrate biosynthesis :
(R)-3-hydroxybutanoyl-CoA + [(R)-3-hydroxybutanoate]n[(R)-3-hydroxybutanoate](n+1) + coenzyme A

Not in pathways:
[(R)-3-hydroxybutanoate]n + H2O → [(R)-3-hydroxybutanoate](n-1) + (R)-3-hydroxybutanoate
