Abstract

Protease and deaminase activities and the metabolism of peptides were measured in rumen fluid from ciliate-free sheep and from sheep with a limited population of small entodinia. The same measurements were repeated following inoculation of the latter group with a more typical mixed ciliate population. Protease and dialanine uptake activities of mixed rumen micro-organisms were not significantly influenced by protozoa. Trialanine uptake, leucine aminopeptidase (EC 3.4.11.1), deaminase and trypsin-like protease activities were 70, 107, 73 and 91% higher with the limited population, and 72, 58, 64 and 55% higher when mixed protozoa were present, indicating a major role for the protozoa in these activities.
