Ruminococcus albus is a typical ruminal bacterium digesting cellulose and hemicellulose. Cellobiose 2-epimerase (CE; EC 5.1.3.11), which converts cellobiose to 4-O-β-D-glucosyl-D-mannose, is a(More)
Cellobiose 2-epimerase (CE) efficiently forms epilactose which has several beneficial biological functions. A thermostable CE from Rhodothermus marinus was immobilized on Duolite A568 and packed into(More)
We previously showed that epilactose, a nondigestible disaccharide, increased calcium (Ca) absorption in the small intestines of rats. Here, we explored the mechanism(s) underlying the(More)
