For in vitro cultures, ciliates
were transferred to new Petri dishes filled with mineral water where rice grains with shells were added to served as carbon source for bacterial growth that would act to sustain the propagation of the tested ciliates
During this study, the presence of other organisms, i.e., protozoa (mixosporidis, ciliates
, and flagellates), was noted.
Rotifers as predators on components of the microbial web (bacteria, heterotrophic flagellates, ciliates
(2015) found that the removal of rumen ciliates
slightly reduced VFA concentrations.
Most of the ciliate
protozoa living in the rumen, they are not present at birth but normally start establishing in the gastrointestinal tract 3 weeks after birth (Iqbal et al., 2008).
The concentration of sBG ciliates
and associated hemocytic nodules in shrimp gill tissue was investigated in monthly shrimp collections in 2014.
Previous reports provided primers and thermocycling protocols used for amplification of general bacteria, ciliate
protozoa, methanogenic archaea, Fibrobacter succinogenes (F.
