Enrichment of rice straw deconstructing YSB gut microbial community and assessment of available enzymes and biomass degrading ability. a The microbial community was passaged for 1 year on the rice straw containing medium and analyzed for various features. b Reduction in rice straw weight after incubation with either enriched consortium or original symbionts; c CMCase activity shown by the supernatant and cell bound protein fraction of YSB gut consortium on plate containing CMC and trypan blue dye; d CMCase and xylanase assay of YSB gut consortium proteins on zymogram; e Morphologically different colonies grown as a result of plating on YEB agar plate
