The xylose yield after 24 h hydrolysis of ammonia fiber expansion (AFEX)-treated corn stover in the presence of accessory enzymes. LβX, LArb and LαGl were loaded individually at different protein loadings, in the presence of an excess of the other two enzymes (1 mg/g glucan each). Major cellulases (CBH I, CBH II and EG I), hemicellulases (LX3 and LX4) were loaded at 5 and 2.5 mg/g glucan each, respectively. Additional βG (2 mg/g glucan) was added to prevent cellobiose build-up.
