Metabolism of Toxic Pyrrolizidine Alkaloids from Tansy Ragwort ( Senecio jacobaea ) in Ovine Ruminal Fluid under Anaerobic Conditionst


The ability of ovine ruminal fluid to metabolize pyrrolizidine alkaloid (PA) from Senecio jacobaea under anaerobic conditions was evaluated. Four fistulated sheep fed PA served as individual sources of ruminal fluid, which was incubated in a defined minimal salts medium under two different anaerobic conditions, denitrifying and methanogenic. Anaerobic… (More)
