From Biogas and Hydrogen to Microbial Protein Through Co-Cultivation of Methane and Hydrogen Oxidizing Bacteria.

Front Bioeng Biotechnol 2021 30;9:733753. Epub 2021 Aug 30.

Center for Microbial Ecology and Technology, Faculty of Bioscience Engineering, Ghent University, Gent, Belgium.

Increasing efforts are directed towards the development of sustainable alternative protein sources among which microbial protein (MP) is one of the most promising. Especially when waste streams are used as substrates, the case for MP could become environmentally favorable. The risks of using organic waste streams for MP production-the presence of pathogens or toxicants-can be mitigated by their anaerobic digestion and subsequent aerobic assimilation of the (filter-sterilized) biogas.

Variations of Soybean Meal and Corn Mixed Substrates in Physicochemical Characteristics and Microbiota During Two-Stage Solid-State Fermentation.

Front Microbiol 2021 17;12:688839. Epub 2021 Aug 17.

National Engineering Laboratory of Biological Feed Safety and Pollution Prevention and Control, Key Laboratory of Molecular Nutrition, Ministry of Education, Key Laboratory of Animal Nutrition and Feed, Ministry of Agriculture, Key Laboratory of Animal Nutrition and Feed Science of Zhejiang Province, Institute of Feed Science, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China.

Corn germ meal (CGM) and corn gluten feed (CGF) are the two main corn byproducts (CBs) obtained from corn starch extraction. Due to their high fiber content, low protein content, and severe imbalance of amino acid, CBs are unable to be fully utilized by animals. In this study, the effect of microorganism, proteases, temperature, solid-liquid ratio, and time on nutritional properties of CB mixture feed (CMF) was investigated with the single-factor method and the response surface method to improve the nutritional quality and utilization of CBs.

Biotechnol Lett 2021 Sep 4. Epub 2021 Sep 4.

Biotechnology & Biochemical Engineering Laboratory (BiotecLab), Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Av. Bento Gonçalves, 9500, PO Box 15090, Porto Alegre, RS, 91501-970, Brazil.

We investigated the fermentation of a mixture of oat and soybean hulls (1:1) subjected to acid (AH) or enzymatic (EH) hydrolyses, with both showing high osmotic pressures (> 1200 Osm kg) for the production of ethanol. Yeasts of genera Spathaspora, Scheffersomyces, Sugiymaella, and Candida, most of them biodiverse Brazilian isolates and previously untested in bioprocesses, were cultivated in these hydrolysates. Spathaspora passalidarum UFMG-CM-469 showed the best ethanol production kinetics in suspended cells cultures in acid hydrolysate, under microaerobic and anaerobic conditions. Read More

Effects of guanidinoacetic acid supplementation on nitrogen retention and methionine flux in cattle.

J Anim Sci 2021 Jun;99(6)

Department of Animal Sciences and Industry, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS 66506, USA.

Creatine stores high-energy phosphate bonds in muscle and is synthesized in the liver through methylation of guanidinoacetic acid (GAA). Supplementation of GAA may therefore increase methyl group requirements, and this may affect methyl group utilization. Our experiment evaluated the metabolic responses of growing cattle to postruminal supplementation of GAA, in a model where methionine (Met) was deficient, with and without Met supplementation.
