Table 1 Percent pNP activity lost due to enzymes bound to lignin

From: New perspective on glycoside hydrolase binding to lignin from pretreated corn stover

pNP substrate % Activity loss in pNP in the unbound fraction
pNP-lactopyranoside (cellobiohydrolases, cellulases) 14
pNP-xylopyranoside (xylanases; β-d-xylobiosidases) 75
pNP-cellobioside (β-d-glucosidases, endoglucanases) 100
pNP-glucopyranoside (β-d-glucosidases) 99
