This possibility is supported by a report of the horizontal gene transfer of glucose hydrolyzing enzymes from the rumen anaerobic bacteria Fibrobacter succinogens to the rumen anaerobic fungus Orpinomyces jouonii (Garcia-Vallve et al.
Recovery of cells from the surface they are attached to, the so-called cell harvest is commonly performed by disrupting the interaction of the cells with the support by manually introducing hydrolyzing enzymes into the culture device.
Results clearly indicated that sunflower hybrid Hysun-33 showed greater activities of two hydrolyzing enzymes and efficient mobilization of reserved sugars and proteins than hybrid FH-533 under Cd stress, so it can be grown on Cd contaminated soils for higher plant productivity.
Perhaps polysaccharide hydrolyzing enzymes play a more crucial role in smaller shellfish that have less robust styles than mature adults, in which the mechanical triturating of food by the grinding action of the style against the gastric shield plays a more important role.
This can be done by treatment with non-starch-polysaccharide hydrolyzing enzymes, which has become a common practice [4].
