ABSTRACT:
Caecal fermentation in rats fed diets with 40% autoclaved potato tubers was examined. The potato tubers of the conventional cultivar, Irga, somaclone Irga, and four transgenic lines with genetically improved resistance to a necrotic strain of potato virus Y (PVYN) were compared. As regards the analysed indices, tubers of transgenic clone R1F (truncated gene coding PVYN polymerase in sense orientation), R2P (truncated gene coding PVYN polymerase in antisense orientation), and NTR1.16 (non-translated regions of the PVYN genome in sense orientation) were similar to tubers of the conventional cultivar Irga. Tubers of transgenic clone NTR2.27 (non-translated regions of PVYN genome in antisense orientation) increased the amount of caecal digesta and production of SCFA compared with tubers of the conventional cultivar and other transgenic clones.
