Degradation and utilization by Butyrivibrio fibrisolvens H17c of xylans with different chemical and physical properties.

Abstract

Hemicelluloses, mainly xylans, can be a major component of diets consumed by ruminants and undergo various degrees of microbial digestion in the rumen. The ability of Butyrivibrio fibrisolvens, a major xylanolytic ruminal species, to degrade and utilize nine chemically and physically different xylans for growth was examined. The arabinoxylans used included… (More)
