Methanogens were isolated from the rumen of Murrah buffaloes (Bubalus bubalis). These isolates (BRM-1, -2 and -3) were found to utilize CO2 + H2 mixture, formate and acetate as substrate, but failed to grow on ethanol and methanol. Their physiological analysis showed that they could tolerate NaCl and bile salts up to 1.0% but 2.0% bile salt inhibited their… CONTINUE READING
