Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2012074476A1] A method for rational mining for induced enzymes in microbial communities is described. The method is characterized in that a community of microorganisms is provided and that the microbial populations of the community are cultivated in a container under conditions of choice, where the microorganisms are given a defined culturing medium, to eliminate matter deriving from the natural habitat and to allow the microbial community to reach a metabolic steady-state. The method is further characterized in that at least one fraction of microorganisms is taken from the container and transferred into at least two separate containers, where at least one of the fractions of microorganisms is provided with a defined medium which includes an inducing substance and/or a substance against which enzyme/enzymes is/are desired, to induce regulation of expression of the desired enzyme/enzymes, and at least one fraction is provided with a defined medium without said inducing substance and without said substance against which enzyme/enzymes is/are desired, for the purpose of comparison, and the fractions are maintained and/or cultivated. Samples of the two fractions are then withdrawn and analyzed for identification of the induced enzyme/enzymes.
