Lipolysis and biohydrogenation in ruminal animals promote the accumulation of saturated fatty acids in their meat and milk. Antibodies were generated against key ruminal lipase contributors Anaerovibrio lipolyticus, Butyrivibrio fibrisolvens, Propionibacterium avidum and acnes. An anti-Pseudomonas lipase antibody was generated to determine if an antibody against a purified protein would be more effective. Each bacterium was cultured and assayed without or with increasing levels of each antibody… CONTINUE READING
