TitleAmino Acids and Ribose: Drivers of Protein and RNA Fermentation by Earthworm Gut Bacteria.
Study TypeOther
Abstract Earthworms are important to plant growth and the turnover of organic matter in the terrestrial biosphere. These invertebrates ingest microbial cells that are subject to disruption by the gizzard. Protein and RNA are the dominate polymers of disrupted microbes, and these biopolymers facilitate robu ..
