Attempted induction of reductive acetogenesis into the rumen fermentation in vitro.

Abstract

Rumen and caecal contents, obtained from slaughterhouse cattle and rumen contents obtained from a fistulated wether were incubated in vitro with ground hay in the presence and absence of, respectively, casein hydrolysate and mucin. Differences in stoichiometry of rumen and caecal fermentations, indicative of reductive acetogenesis in the caecum, were… (More)
