  • Publication number: 20190160156
    Abstract: The invention relates to the use of at least one acid stable protease in poultry feed in combination with anti-coccidial vaccination of birds for increasing the performance of vaccinated animals. It has been found surprisingly that the additions of at least one acid stable protease according to the invention to the diet of “cocci”-vaccinated birds have a significant improvement of animal performance. The inventors found that especially the use of serine proteases improve the performance of vaccinated broiler chickens, in particular, the use of serine proteases increases weight gain and improves Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR) of cocci-vaccinated birds.

  • Publication number: 20190161786
    Abstract: Provided herein are systems and components thereof for improving protease activity. The systems make use of an emulsion for in vitro compartmentalization of a library of synthetic compounds, each compound having a gene linked to a protease substrate and selectable marker. Expressed enzymes with greater protease activity will preferentially hydrolyze the protease substrate, whereas enzymes with less protease activity will leave the substrate intact. Removal of the non-hydrolyzed compounds provides an enriched gene library encoding for more active protease variants. Also described are synthetic compounds and emulsions which can be used in the methods.
