cellulytic

cellulytic

breakdown of cellulose, e.g. by hydrolysis. Occurs at a sufficient level to provide a source of energy only in ruminants and species with a large intestine adapted to fermentation.

cellulytic bacteria
bacteria in the rumen which digest cellulose to volatile fatty acids especially acetic, butyric and propionic.
