Metagenome sequence predicted the culture conditions required for successful isolation of a marsupial gut bacterium. The Tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii) harbors unique gut bacteria and produces only one-fifth the amount of methane produced by ruminants per unit of digestible energy intake. We have isolated a dominant bacterial species (WG-1) from the wallaby microbiota affiliated with the family Succinivibrionaceae and implicated in lower methane emissions from starch-containing diets. This… Expand
Investigation of a new acetogen isolated from an enrichment of the tammar wallaby forestomach
TLDR
The macropod forestomach may be a useful source of acetogens for future strategies to reduce methane emissions from ruminants, particularly if these strategies also include some level of methane suppression and/or acetogen stimulation, for example by harnessing mixotrophic growth capabilities.

Do Rumen Bacteroidetes Utilize an Alternative Mechanism for Cellulose Degradation?
TLDR
A reconstructed genome from an uncultured Bacteroidetes phylotype that dominates a switchgrass-associated community within the cow rumen is interrogated, revealing the first preliminary evidence for polysaccharide utilization locus (PUL)-catalyzed conversion of cellulose. Expand
Complete Genome Sequencing and Transcriptome Analysis of Nitrogen Metabolism of Succinivibrio dextrinosolvens Strain Z6 Isolated From Dairy Cow Rumen
TLDR
In conclusion, integrated whole genome sequencing and matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry, coupled with phenotypic and chemotaxonomic analysis, enhances the understanding of the roles of Succinivibrionaceae in the efficient nitrogen utilization and on environmental protection.

In-depth diversity analysis of the bacterial community resident in the camel rumen.
TLDR
The results clearly showed that the camel rumen microbiome was structurally similar but compositionally distinct from that of other ruminants, such as the cow. Expand
The early impact of genomics and metagenomics on ruminal microbiology.
TLDR
A program to culture and isolate microbial species for the purpose of standard microbial characterization to aid in assigning function to genomic data remains critical, especially for genes of unknown function. Expand
Omics-based interpretation of synergism in a soil-derived cellulose-degrading microbial community
TLDR
Genomic and proteomic analyses of reconstructed bacterial draft genomes from all seven uncultured phylotypes in F1RT indicate that its constituent microbes cooperate in both cellulose-degrading and other important metabolic processes. Expand
Exploring the sheep rumen microbiome for carbohydrate- active enzymes
TLDR
The sheep rumen micro- biome is shown as a promising source of new fibrolytic enzymes, focusing on carbohydrate- active enzymes (CAE), with a total of 28 lignocellulases, 22 amylases and 9 other putative CAE identified. Expand
Exploring the sheep rumen microbiome for carbohydrate-active enzymes
TLDR
The bacterial composition and functions in the sheep rumen microbiome are described, focusing on carbohydrate-active enzymes (CAE) and a positive correlation between the abundance of Prevotellaceae and organic matter degradability is shown. Expand
The strange ways of the tammar wallaby
  • Medicine
  • Lab Animal
  • 2013
TLDR
The tammar wallaby is the second marsupial and first macropod to have its genome sequenced and a new bacterium in the Succinivibrionaceae family of the Proteobacteria phylum has been identified in the foregut of the tammar. Expand
The rumen microbial metagenome associated with high methane production in cattle
TLDR
The abundance of archaeal genes in ruminal digesta correlated strongly with differing methane emissions from individual animals, a finding useful for genetic screening purposes. Expand

Functional Gene Analysis Suggests Different Acetogen Populations in the Bovine Rumen and Tammar Wallaby Forestomach
TLDR
Novel, deduced amino acid sequences of acsB and fhs affiliated with the Lachnospiraceae in both ecosystems and the Ruminococcaeae/Blautia group in the rumen may have significance for overall hydrogenotrophy inboth ecosystems. Expand
Metagenomic and functional analysis of hindgut microbiota of a wood-feeding higher termite
TLDR
A metagenomic analysis of the bacterial community resident in the hindgut paunch of a wood-feeding ‘higher’ Nasutitermes species shows the presence of a large, diverse set of bacterial genes for cellulose and xylan hydrolysis, the first system-wide gene analysis of a microbial community specialized towards plant lignocellulose degradation.

Hydrogen utilising bacteria from the forestomach of eastern grey (Macropus giganteus) and red (Macropus rufus) kangaroos.
TLDR
From samples of gut contents from five eastern grey and three red kangaroos, the authors were not able to detect methanogens using a PCR protocol, but did detect the formyltetrahydrofolate synthetase (FTHFS) gene (likely to be used for reductive acetogenesis) in all animals. Expand
Community Composition and Density of Methanogens in the Foregut of the Tammar Wallaby (Macropus eugenii)

Adaptation to herbivory by the Tammar wallaby includes bacterial and glycoside hydrolase profiles different from other herbivores
TLDR
Collective data demonstrate that Australian macropods not only harbor unique bacterial lineages underpinning plant biomass conversion, but their repertoire of glycoside hydrolases is distinct from those of the microbiomes of higher termites and the bovine rumen. Expand

Recycling of urea nitrogen to the gut of the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii)
TLDR
It appears that blood urea is transferred into the stomach of tammars given lucerne more readily than into the rumen of sheep given Lucerne, which is similar to what is seen in animals given a low nitrogen chopped oaten hay diet. Expand
