  • Patent number: 9695455
    Abstract: A method of producing protein nanoparticles from waste chicken feathers by enzymatic hydrolysis followed by ultrasonic treatment is disclosed. The process includes pretreatment of the chicken feathers. Then feather fibers are hydrolyzed enzymatically. The effects of enzyme concentration, hydrolysis time, and substrate concentration on particle mean size are analyzed to optimize the best condition in order to attain the smallest particles by a Box-Behnken Design. A minimum particle size is obtained by using 5 g/l feather and 3.6% enzyme with a hydrolysis time of 243 h. The hydrolyzed particles are then subjected to ultrasonic treatment to produce nanoparticles. The produced protein particles have high potential to be used in nanocomposites and adsorbents.

  • Publication number: 20150118361
    Abstract: The presence of non-starch polysaccharides (NSP) in the plant cell wall reduces the digestibility and limits the apparent metabolizable energy (AME) and performance of animals. The main chain degrading enzymes, especially xylanase, cellulase and glucanase play an important role in improving the digestibility of NSP in the feed. Ferulic acid esterase (FAE) breaks the ferulate cross linkages in the plant cell wall, and aids the main chain hydrolases to further degrade the plant cell wall. The present study investigated the synergy of FAE in combination with main chain degrading enzymes in improving the AME of birds fed with high fiber diet. The addition of FAE improves the access of main chain degrading enzymes, digestibility of high fiber diet, AME in layers and broilers, Body weight and reduces FCR in broilers.
