Formatted Abstract/Summary
Reductive acetogenesis is an alternative sink for the disposal of excess hydrogen in the rumen and has been proposed as a mechanism to reduce ruminal methanogenesis (Joblin 1999). The bacteria responsible for this process are known as acetogens and are phylogenetically diverse (Lovell and Hui 1991). Acetogens dominate in the rumen of very young lambs before colonisation with methanogens (Morvan, Dore et al. 1994). We have therefore established gnotobiotically-raised lambs kept free from methanogens, to provide a unique environment where the natural rumen acetogen population can be maintained and further studied. The aim of the present study was to identify novel potential rumen acetogens using a gnotobiotic lamb model.
