ABSTRACT
The predictions of the standard model for the anomalous magnetic momentum of the muon, deviates from the direct measurements by 3,6 σ. A gauge boson of a new U(1)-Interaction, the so called dark photon, is predicted in many expansions of the standard model and could explain those deviations. In order to search for such a dark photon, a dedicated experiment is scheduled at the planned low energy accelerator MESA in Mainz. In order to detect dark photons this experiment needs a high resolution detector with a suitable acceptance.

    Poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB) is synthesized from 3-hydroxybutyryl-CoA by polyhydroxyalkanoate synthase and hydrolyzed by PHB depolymerase. In this study, we focused on the reverse reaction of polyhydroxyalkanoate synthase, and propose the possibility that PHB can be degraded through a novel...
