Patterns of peptide metabolism by rumen microorganisms

Abstract

Some fundamental microbiology and biochemistry of peptide breakdown in the rumen is described. Peptides are extensively broken down in the rumen and only small quantities of peptide-N were found in rumen fluid from sheep 7 h after feeding. The main determinant affecting the rate of hydrolysis of different peptides added to rumen fluid in vitro was the structure of the N-terminus of the peptide chain. Neutral and basic peptides also tended to be hydrolysed more rapidly than acidic peptides. Peptide hydrolysis was carried out mainly by rumen bacteria, apparently by a dipeptidyl peptidase type I (DP-1) mechanism. Bacteroides ruminicola was the only rumen bacterial species found to possess significant DP-1 activity.
