Table 1 Functional characterization of the consensus plant biomass degradation modules M1 to M5

From: Inference of phenotype-defining functional modules of protein families for microbial plant biomass degraders

Modulea,b Description
M1 Lignocellulose degradation (cellulose and hemicellulose degradation)
M2 Xylan binding and xyloglucan degradation (hemicellulose degradation)
M3 Pectin degradation
M4 Degradation of glycan compounds
M5 Structural components of the cellulosome-based degradation paradigm (dockerin and cohesin)
  1. aWe characterized each module based on the set of protein families contained within it.
  2. bAdditional file 1 shows each consensus module as a list of Pfam/CAZy terms (Tables S1A-5A).
