The aim of the present study is to investigate the effects of different dietary concentrations of second generation b-galacto-oligosaccharides (BimunoTM, Clasado Limited, United Kingdom), produced by transgalactosylation of lactose by b-galactosidase of Bifidobacterium bifidum NCIMB 41171, on growth performance, feed conversion efficiency, and organs development in broilers.
Para a extracao da b-galactosidase, dez gramas da polpa foram homogeneizadas em Turratec da marca TECANL (Turrax) com 30 mL de solucao tampao de acetato de sodio 50 mM, pH 5,0 gelado, contendo 1 M de NaCl e 10% de polivinilpolipirrolidione (PVPP), durante 6 minutos, a 4[degrees]C.
This bubble fuses with lysosomes, cell organelles whose contents include the enzyme B-galactosidase. This enzyme splits galactose off of polysaccharides.
Enzyme, b-galactosidase has both industrial and clinical significance, its therapeutic role is well documented and has been investigated in number of microorganisms [7].
