An investigation of functional diversity of endogenous cellulase and expression of other digestive enzyme genes in freshwater crayfish (Cherax) species
Dammannagoda Acharige, Lalith Keerthiratne (2014) An investigation of functional diversity of endogenous cellulase and expression of other digestive enzyme genes in freshwater crayfish (Cherax) species. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.
The project evaluated potential of soluble cellulose as a cheap feed ingredient for major farmed Australian freshwater crayfish species testing their growth performance, digestive enzyme activity and digestive enzyme gene expression patterns. Test animals showed an innate capacity to utilise a range of carbohydrate sources including complex structural polysaccharides. Results suggest that more plant-derived ingredient can be incorporated in formulated low-cost feeds for the culture industry.
