Effect of the carbon source on the production of lignocellulolytic enzymatic activities by F. oxysporum. (A) hemicellulolytic (white – xylanase, dark grey – α-L-arabinofuranosidase, black – xylosidase, light grey – feruloyl esterase) and (B) cellulolytic enzymes (white – endoglucanase, dark grey – β-glucosidase, black – cellobiohydrolase) activities produced by F. oxysporum grown under submerged conditions for 5 days. The initial culture pH was 6.0 and the temperature was set at 30°C. Values are the mean of three determinations and vertical error bars represent standard deviation.
