The Vacuolar-Type -ATPase in Ovine Rumen Epithelium is Regulated by Metabolic Signals
Ruminal fluid concentrations of short chain fatty acids and accompanying pH values. Ruminal fluid were obtained from sheep ( = 22) slaughtered during the second experimental period. For comparison, data from sheep fed hay ad libitum are also given. Note the high proportion of samples showing high pH values and compared to hay fed sheep low SCFA concentrations indicative of low feed intake.
