An enzyme complex for biological conversion of CO to CO<inf>2</inf> was anchored on the cell surface of the CO<inf>2</inf>-utilizing Ralstonia eutropha and successfully resulted in a 3.3-fold increase in conversion efficiency. These results suggest that this complexed system may be a promising strategy for CO<inf>2</inf> utilization as a biological tool for the production of bioplastics.
