Activity and cellular localization of amylases of rabbit cecal bacteria
|Kateg. publikace||Vědecké publikace impaktované|
Five 11-week-old rabbits, fed a commercial granulated feed, were slaughtered and cecal starch-degrading bacteria enumerated. The activity and cellular localization of amylases was determined in 9 bacteria identified as strains of Actinomyces israeli, Bacteroides spp., Dichelobacter nodosus, Milsuokella multiacidus, Eubacterium spp., Clostridium spp. Four strains produced extracellular amylases; in five strains amylases were membrane-bound. All strains exhibited a low intracellular amylolytic activity. The pH optimum of amylases was 6.8-7.0. In strains producing extracellular amylases a substantial loss of viscosity was observed during incubations of cultivation supernatant with starch; this indicates an endo-type (random cleavage) of extracellular amylase reaction in the bacteria under study. No strain possessed glucoamylase activity.
