The third part (10 mL of rumen fluid) was used for variable bacteria counts (cellulolytic, proteolytic, and amylolytic) using the roll-tube technique [20].
Five bacterial groups were selected and classified according to their metabolic ability: bacteria capable of producing lactic acid (lactic acid bacteria) and those capable of degrading cellulose (cellulolytic bacteria), lipids (lipolytic bacteria), proteins (proteolytic bacteria) or starches (amylolytic bacteria).
Molecular technique for yeast strain that was containing amylolytic, cellulolytic, and a-glucosidase enzymes was constructed (30).
According to T.Ashokvardhan; it was found that among the 25 Actinomycetes, 96% (24 strains) were amylolytic, 88% were proteolytic and 44% (11 strains) exhibited lipolytic activity 55, Payal found that during primary screening, a total of 8090% isolates showed cellulase activity 8, Mohanta, found 18% isolates as cellulase producing organism (47).
Digestive proteolytic and amylolytic activities of Helicoverpa armigera in response to feeding on different soybean cultivars.
Protozoa are competing for substrate with amylolytic bacteria, and protozoa ferment starch more slowly than amylolytic bacteria (Owens et al., 1998; Nagaraja et al., 1992), resulting in reduced rumen starch digestibility and pushing starch digestion to the intestines (Mendoza et al., 1993).
Nowadays the enzymes from hyperthermophiles are widely used in industries (Sabir et al., 2017) and especially are replacing the use of other amylolytic enzymes in starch industry.
