Ecological balance in the rumen is highly sensitive to concentrate-rich diets. Yet the effects of these feeding practices on the caprine bacterial epimural microbiome (CBEM), a microbial community with putative important physiological functions in the rumen, are largely unexplored. This study aimed to investigate the effect of dietary concentrate amount on ruminal CBEM. Seventeen growing goats were fed diets with 0 [n=5; 6.2MJ of metabolizable energy (ME)/d], 30 (n=6; 7.3MJ of /d), or 60% (n=6…

The Effect of a High-Grain Diet on the Rumen Microbiome of Goats with a Special Focus on Anaerobic Fungi

Results strongly indicate that the rumen ecosystem still acts as a source for novel microorganisms and unexplored microbial interactions and that initial rumen microbiota of the host animal considerably influences the reaction pattern upon diet change.

Epimural Indicator Phylotypes of Transiently-Induced Subacute Ruminal Acidosis in Dairy Cattle

Results show that the BEBM re-establishes the baseline conditions slower after a SARA challenge than ruminal pH, and key phylotypes that were reduced during both challenges may help to establish a bacterial fingerprint to facilitate understanding effects of SARA conditions on the bovine epimural bacterial microbiome and their consequences for the ruminant host.

Epimural bacterial community structure in the rumen of Holstein cows with different responses to a long-term subacute ruminal acidosis diet challenge.

Major shifts in the 3 dominating phyla and, most importantly, a loss of diversity in the epimural bacterial communities during a long-term SARA diet challenge are revealed, in which 60% concentrate supply for 4 wk was instrumental rather than the magnitude of the drop of ruminal pH below 5.8.

Characterizing the bacterial community across the gastrointestinal tract of goats: Composition and potential function

There were significant differences in composition and potential function among the bacterial communities in the goat GIT, with Bacteroidetes and Firmicutes dominating and the relative abundances of bacteria at the phylum and genus levels were significantly correlated with these metabolic functions.

Analysis of bacterial community in rumen fluid of cattle supplemented with different protein and energy sources

Evidence is provided on the effect of diet on the interaction of rumen microbial community and the Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes were the prominent groups in the rumen irrespective of diet supplements.

Antibiotic pretreatment minimizes dietary effects on reconstructure of rumen fluid and mucosal microbiota in goats

It is found that antibiotic administration led to increases in the diversity and richness of recovered mucosal microbiota and to decreases in those of recovered fluid microbiota, while dietary modulation after antibiotic intake showed little difference in structure from premodulated states.

Metagenomic Sequencing Reveals that High-Grain Feeding Alters the Composition and Metabolism of Cecal Microbiota and Induces Cecal Mucosal Injury in Sheep

The modification of the cecal microbiome and host epithelial gene expression is described based on data from 20 sheep grouped to feed an HG diet for 7, 14, and 28 days to provide novel insights into understanding microbiome-host interactions in the hindgut of ruminants.

The Regulation of Ruminal Short-Chain Fatty Acids on the Functions of Rumen Barriers

Diet-SCFA axis maintains the host-microbe homeostasis via promoting the diversification of epimural microbiota and maintaining the integrity of rumen epithelium in healthy animals, while via enhancing the activities of immune barrier in animal with lower rumen pH.

Illumina Sequencing and Metabolomics Analysis Reveal Thiamine Modulation of Ruminal Microbiota and Metabolome Characteristics in Goats Fed a High-Concentrate Diet

It is demonstrated that thiamine supplementation can alleviate subacute ruminal acidosis (SARA) by stabilizing the microbial community and reducing toxic unnatural compounds.



Changes in the Rumen Epimural Bacterial Diversity of Beef Cattle as Affected by Diet and Induced Ruminal Acidosis

Determining the metabolic roles of these key genera in the rumens of cattle fed high-grain diets could define a clinical microbial profile associated with ruminal acidosis.

PCR-DGGE analysis reveals a distinct diversity in the bacterial population attached to the rumen epithelium.

The profile of the bacterial population attached to the rumen epithelium presented a high inter-animal variation, whether this difference has an influence in the function of this community remains to be determined.

Changes in Bacterial Diversity Associated with Epithelial Tissue in the Beef Cow Rumen during the Transition to a High-Grain Diet

The total estimated population of rumen epimural bacteria was positively correlated with molar proportions of acetate, isobutyrate, and isovalerate, suggesting that they may play a role in volatile fatty acid metabolism in the rumen.

Characterization of the Core Rumen Microbiome in Cattle during Transition from Forage to Concentrate as Well as during and after an Acidotic Challenge

This study investigated the effect of diet and host on the rumen bacterial microbiome and the impact of an acidotic challenge on its composition. Using parallel pyrosequencing of the V3 hypervariable

Rumen Microbiome Composition Determined Using Two Nutritional Models of Subacute Ruminal Acidosis

The microbiome of 64 rumen samples taken from eight lactating Holstein dairy cattle was analyzed using terminal restriction fragment length polymorphisms (TRFLP) of 16S rRNA genes and real-time PCR to suspect that E. coli may be a contributing factor in disease onset.

High-grain feeding causes strong shifts in ruminal epithelial bacterial community and expression of Toll-like receptor genes in goats

First insight is provided into the adaptive response of ruminal epithelial bacterial populations to HG feeding in goats and shows that these changes were associated with alterations in TLR expression, providing new insight into understanding of host–microbial relationships in ruminants.

Changes in rumen bacterial community composition in steers in response to dietary nitrate

The liquid-associated bacterial community composition changed due to nitrate supplementation, and at least part of this change reflects an increase in the species prevalence of C. fetus, a species which is not typically regarded as a ruminal inhabitant.

Comparative Survey of Rumen Microbial Communities and Metabolites across One Caprine and Three Bovine Groups, Using Bar-Coded Pyrosequencing and 1H Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy

The data indicate that bovine host breeds override diet as the key factor that determines bacterial community and metabolite profiles in the rumen.
