Table 1 The sugar composition determined by the HPAEC-PAD of C. homosphaera after acidic hydrolysis with 1 mol/L H 2 SO 4

From: Untreated Chlorella homosphaera biomass allows for high rates of cell wall glucan enzymatic hydrolysis when using exoglucanase-free cellulases

Sugar % Biomass % Total sugar
Glucose 53.9 (5.4) 90.4 (9.0)
Galactose 3.2 (0.2) 5.4 (0.3)
Arabinose 1.6 (0.1) 2.6 (0.2)
Mannose 0.8 (0.1) 1.3 (0.1)
Xylose 0.3 (0.0) 0.5 (0.0)
Total 59.7 (5.6) 100.2
  1. Hydrolysis and HPAEC-PAD analysis conditions are described in the ‘Materials and methods’ section. The numbers shown in the brackets are the standard deviations of the means.
