In vivo localization studies on PhaA, PhaB and PhaC expression in P. tricornutum. Sequences for PhaA (ketothiolase), PhaB (acetoacetyl-CoA reductase) and PhaC (PHB synthase) of R. eutropha H16 were introduced as GFP fusion proteins in P. tricornutum. All three enzymes were expressed in the heterologous system and accumulate in the cytosol as no specific targeting signal was added. Plastid autofluorescence is shown in red and GFP fluorescence is depicted in green. Scale bar represents 10 μm. PAF - plastid autofluorescence, Re - R. eutropha H16
