Evaluation of subsampling and fixation procedures used for counting rumen protozoa.

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Applied and environmental microbiology
  • 1 July 1984
TLDR
It was concluded that attachment to feed particles is probably not a problem in counting procedures and the concentration of formaldehyde used for preservation of rumen contents, 4, 10, or 18.5%, did not affect the total count. Expand
VITAMIN REQUIREMENTS OF SEVERAL CELLULOLYTIC RUMEN BACTERIA.
TLDR
Four strains of cellulolytic bacteria recently isolated from in vitro rumen fermentations were used in this study and a mixture of purified amino acids simulating casein hydrolysate satisfied the vitamin requirements for R. flavefaciens Cla. Expand
Electricity generation from cellulose by rumen microorganisms in microbial fuel cells
TLDR
It is demonstrated that electricity can be generated from cellulose by exploiting rumen microorganisms as biocatalysts and cellulose as the electron donor in two‐compartment MFCs, but both technical and biological optimization is needed to maximize power output. Expand
Laboratory Manual for Classification and Morphology of Rumen Ciliate Protozoa
TLDR
The classification of Rumen Ciliate Protozoa found in the Orders Prostomatida and Trichostomatidas and the Order Entodiniomorphida led to the establishment of the Subfamily Ophryoscolecinae, which contains the largest number of genera in the world. Expand
Effect of soluble carbohydrates on digestion of cellulose by pure cultures of rumen bacteria.
TLDR
Prolonged exposure of the bacteria to a low pH had little if any effect on their subsequent ability to digest cellulose, and cellulase activity of intact bacterial cells appeared to be constitutive in nature for these three species of rumen bacteria. Expand
Rumen ciliate fauna of Alaskan moose (Alces americana), musk-ox (Ovibos moschatus) and Dall moutain sheep (Ovis dalli).

  • Biology, Medicine
  • The Journal of protozoology
  • 1 February 1974
TLDR
Only protozoa in the genus Entodinium were observed in moose, while Dall mountain sheep have a fauna unique among Alaskan ruminants studied to date. Expand
Phylogeny of the Rumen Ciliates Entodinium, Epidinium and Polyplastron (Litostomatea: Entodiniomorphida) Inferred from Small Subunit Ribosomal RNA Sequences
ABSTRACT. Three complete 18S ribosomal RNA gene sequences from the rumen ciliates, Entodinium coudatum (1,639 bp), Epidinium caudarum (1,638 bp), and Polyplastron multivesiculatum (1,640 bp) wereExpand
Effect of external resistance on bacterial diversity and metabolism in cellulose-fed microbial fuel cells.
TLDR
Concentrations of short chain fatty acids were higher in MFCs with larger circuit loads, suggesting that fermentative metabolism dominated over anaerobic respiration using the anode as the final electron acceptor. Expand
Effects of long-chain Fatty acids on growth of rumen bacteria.
TLDR
In general, exogenous long-chain fatty acids appear to have little, if any, energy-sparing effect on the growth of rumen bacteria. Expand
