From: The role of acetyl xylan esterase in the solubilization of xylan and enzymatic hydrolysis of wheat straw and giant reed

Figure 3

Relationship of hydrolysis yields between cellulose and xylan in wheat straw (filled circle) and giant reed (open circle) after 48 h hydrolysis by combined cellulases and xylanolytic enzymes in 50 mM sodium citrate buffer at pH 5.0 and at 45°C. The hydrolysis yield of cellulose was calculated from glucose and cellobiose released from substrates. The hydrolysis yield of xylan was calculated from xylose, xylobiose and xylotriose released from substrates. The calculations were based on monosaccharides in the raw materials.
