Figure 8

Final production of lactate, acetate, ethanol and isobutanol and cellulose utilization by C. cellulolyticum strains transformed with pLyc025. The metabolic productivity of the transformants was compared in 5 g/l cellobiose (A), 10 g/l cellulose (B) and 50 g/l cellulose (C), respectively. The cellulose utilization at the two different concentrations was also comared (D). The error bars represent standard deviations of measurements from three replicate cultures.
