Fig. 3

Transgenic trees expressing AnAXE1 had higher sugar yields. a Sugar yields after enzymatic hydrolysis without pretreatment. b Combined sugar yields after acid pretreatment and enzymatic hydrolysis. Yields are expressed per unit wood dry weight. The inset in b represents glucan yields for enzymatic hydrolysis only. Mean ± SE, n = 5 biological replicates. Asterisks in a and b mark lines significantly different from WT: *P ≤ 0.1; **P ≤ 0.05; ***P ≤ 0.01 (Student’s t test). P values shown above the bars correspond to post-ANOVA contrast analysis comparing all transgenic lines to WT
