Poly(3-hydroxyalkanoates) (PHAs) were isolated from Pseudomonas putida KT2442 cultivated on petroselenic acid, oleic acid, and linoleic acid to study beta-oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids. Both saturated and unsaturated medium chain length 3-hydroxy fatty acids were found to be constituents of these polymers. With the aid of proton-detected multiple quantum coherence and proton-detected multiple bond coherence NMR spectra the structures of the unsaturated monomers were identified as 3-hydroxy-5-cis-tetradecanoate for PHA produced on oleic acid, and 3-hydroxy-6-cis-dodecanoate and 3-hydroxy-5-cis-8-cis-tetradecadienoate for PHA produced on linoleic acid. The identified structures, which are derived from fatty acid degradation intermediates, indicate a degradation of oleic acid via the enoyl-CoA isomerase-dependent route and a degradation of linoleic acid via the dienoyl-CoA reductase-dependent route.
