Real-time monitoring of ruminal microbiota reveals their roles in dairy goats during subacute ruminal acidosis
During the Targeting Animal 2021 Symposium, Dr. Shengru Wu from Postdoc of Karolinska Institutet & Associate professor of Northwest A&F University, China, will present presentation entitled « Real-time monitoring of ruminal microbiota reveals their roles in dairy goats during subacute ruminal acidosis« .
Summary of Talk: Ruminal microbiota changes frequently with high grain diets and the occurrence of subacute ruminal acidosis (SARA). Significant bacterial differences between goats from the SARA and healthy groups are identified at every hour for six continuous hours after feeding, and 29 common differential genera between two groups over 6 h after feeding are all related to the altered pH and lipopolysaccharides. Transplanting the microbiota from donor goats with SARA could induce colonic inflammation in antibiotic-pretreated mice. Overall, significant differences in the bacterial community and rumen fermentation pattern between the healthy and SARA dairy goats are real-time monitored, and then tested using ruminal microbe transplantation to antibiotic-treated mice.
