|Title:||The effect of different xylanases on carbohydrate digestion and viscosity along the intestinal tract in broilers||Contributor(s):||Choct, Mingan (author)||Publication Date:||1998||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/17487||Abstract:||The mode of action of two xylanase products on the digestion of non-starch polysaccharides (NSP) and digesta viscosity along the gut was examined in broilers fed two wheats with different metabolisable energy values. Significantly (P<0.01) higher viscosity values (mPa.s) were observed in the duodenum (3.68 vs 2.58), jejunum (5.14 vs 2.6) and ileum (18 vs 10.6) of birds fed the low-ME wheat compared with those fed the normal wheat. In the duodenum, both enzyme products lowered (P<0.05) the viscosity regardless of wheat type, but in the jejunum, a reduction in viscosity was observed only in the birds fed the low-ME wheat. Both enzymes caused an increase in the ileal viscosity. The relative level of soluble NSP in the ileum was significantly (P<0.01) elevated by both enzymes and this coincided with a decrease in the insoluble NSP level. The enzymes did not release substantial amounts of monosaccharides and oligosaccharides.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||10th Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 1998||Conference Details:||10th Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 1998||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the Australian Poultry Science Symposium 1998, p. 111-115||Publisher:||Poultry Research Foundation, University of Sydney||Place of Publication:||Sydney, Australia||ISSN:||1034-6260||Field of Research (FOR):||070204 Animal Nutrition||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://sydney.edu.au/vetscience/apss/documents/1998/APSS1998-choct-pp111-115.pdf||Series Name:||Australian Poultry Science Symposium Proceedings||Series Number :||10||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 185
