Rumen microbial community composition varies with diet and host, but a core microbiome is found across a wide geographical range
Ruminant livestock are important sources of human food and global greenhouse gas emissions. Feed degradation and methane formation by ruminants rely on metabolic interactions between rumen microbesExpand

Horizontal gene transfer from Bacteria to rumen Ciliates indicates adaptation to their anaerobic, carbohydrates-rich environment
BackgroundThe horizontal transfer of expressed genes from Bacteria into Ciliates which live in close contact with each other in the rumen (the foregut of ruminants) was studied using ciliateExpand

Influence of high temperature and humidity on rumen bacterial diversity in Holstein heifers.
The effect of heat and humidity stresses on the rumen bacterial molecular diversity of heifers was studied. No statistically significant changes in the rumen microbiota composition were found in theExpand

Responses in digestion, rumen fermentation and microbial populations to inhibition of methane formation by a halogenated methane analogue.
The effects of the anti-methanogenic compound, bromochloromethane (BCM), on rumen microbial fermentation and ecology were examined in vivo. Japanese goats were fed a diet of 50 % Timothy grass and 50Expand

Stimulatory and inhibitory effects of protein amino acids on growth rate and efficiency of mixed ruminal bacteria.
Mixed ruminal bacteria were incubated in vitro with glucose, xylose, cellobiose, and various protein amino acids replaced isonitrogenously with 25% (i.e., 25 mg of N/L) of ammonia-N, to determine theExpand

PCR Detection of DNAs of Animal Origin in Feed by Primers Based on Sequences of Short and Long Interspersed Repetitive Elements
PCR primers for the detection of materials derived from ruminants, pigs, and chickens were newly designed on the basis of sequences of the Art2 short interspersed repetitive element (SINE), PRE-1Expand

Phylogenetic analysis of methyl coenzyme‐M reductase detected from the bovine rumen
Aims:  The object of the present study is isolation of methyl coenzyme‐M reductase (MCR) genes (mcrA) from the bovine rumen fluid and determination of phylogenetical placements of the genes toExpand

Control of Rumen Microbial Fermentation for Mitigating Methane Emissions from the Rumen
The rumen microbial ecosystem produces methane as a result of anaerobic fermentation. Methanogenesis in the rumen is thought to represent a 2-12% loss of energy intake and is estimated to be aboutExpand
