Table 4 Enhancement of Cellic CTec2 performance at a dosage resulting in about 30% glucan conversion of pretreated sugar cane bagasse by recombinant CBH in transgenic corn stover leaf extract

From: The combination of plant-expressed cellobiohydrolase and low dosages of cellulases for the hydrolysis of sugar cane bagasse

Pretreatment Cellic CTec2 dosage resulting in about 30% glucan conversion (FPU/g glucan) Cellic CTec2 dosage equivalent to the performance of Cellic CTec2 plus 5 units recombinant CBH (FPU/g glucan) Fold increase in Cellic CTec2 performance
