The efficacy of a new 6-phytase obtained from Buttiauxella spp. expressed in Trichoderma reesei on digestibility of amino acids, energy, and nutrients

    This paper shows that exogenous phytase has the potential to enhance digestibility of energy, N, and AA and many other nutrients other than P. The development of phytase that can tolerate the acidic gastric environment and initiate the hydrolysis of phytic acid under this condition is essential in improving the effects of phytase in nutrients and energy digestibility in swine.
