Supplemental NFC had negative effects on NDF digestion because of the associated reduction in ruminal pH (Mould and Orskov, 1983), and the threshold below which cellulytic
activity would be inhibited was approximately 6.
Plants, whether grasses or legumes, vary in their cellulytic
(fiber) make up.
The pathogenic strain 9117 (a human clinical isolate causing cellulitis) caused weight loss in experimentally infected mice and was highly cellulytic
to human brain microvessel endothelial cell (BMEC) monolayers and invasive of Hep-2 cells.
Compared to controls engineered with one or two cellulases, the triple cellulase displaying yeast had higher rates of hydrolysis, demonstrating the benefit of using diverse cellulytic
enzymes in a single organism.

1976) Comparative studies on cellulytic
and oxidizing enzyme activities of edible and inedible wood rotters.
Although AOC does not produce the enzymatic machinery to completely depolymerize structural carbohydrates to simple sugars, it does produce enzymes that cause partial depolymerization (Boing, 1983) and it aids rumen cellulytic
bacteria in completing the depolymerization of cellulosic material to simple sugars (Autrey et al.
activities of these pathogens enable them to access [ILLEGIBLE TEXT] intracellular sources of host iron as hemoglobin, myoglobin, catalase, and ferritin (17).
