Progress toward the perfect pea with removal of inhibitors that stop proteins being absorbed fully

Scientists at the BBSRC strategically-funded John Innes Centre have developed peas that will help animals absorb more protein from their diet. The study is published in PLOS ONE. The new peas will cut costs for farmers because fewer of the novel peas will give the same or higher nutritional benefit than standard peas. Pea and other legume seeds contain several inhibitors that...

Fermented soybean meal has additional advantages for pig diets

In addition to protein content, lower cost, and lack of anti-nutritional factors, fermented soybean meal (FSBM) also meets pigs’ phosphorous requirements. Recently published work by the Hans Stein group at the University of Illinois (presented at the 44th Nottingham Feed Conference ) has found that pigs digest the phosphorous in FSBM better than the phosphorous in...

Solution for Bioengineering digestible Legumes for Rumens

PNAS published the result from a team of researchers used reverse genetics to characterize more than 30 seed-induced transcription factors (TFs) in model legume alfalfa (Medicago truncatula). One of the TFs, MtPAR – MYB transcription factor - , was found to regulate genes involved in Proanthocyanidins (PAs; also called condensed tannins) biosynthesis. Proanthocyanidins are...
