  1. Released glucose equivalents were measured by the DNS method. Cellulase activities are expressed in units (μmol glucose equivalents released per minute and per mg enzyme). For xylanase and xyloglucanase activities, values correspond to μmol xylose equivalents min-1 mg-1. CMC, carboxymethylcellulose; DNS, dinitrosalicylic acid; ND = not detectable.
