Substrate specificity of feruloyl esterases. The HPLC chromatograms of 72-h hydrolysates of C-X (gray line) and C-X-FAE mixtures (blue, red, and green lines for An FaeA, Ts FaeC, and Nc FaeD, respectively) show the separation of p-coumaric acid and ferulic acid released during hydrolysis of H58 pith fraction. p-Coumaric acid (pCA) eluted at 9.6 min; ferulic acid (FA) eluted at 11.0 min.
