Endoglucanase activity (units/mg of protein) from leaves of three transgenic TcEG1 events using carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) as substrate at pH 12.0. Leaves were either air dried for 2 weeks in the greenhouse (black bars) or dried for 3 days in an oven at 46 °C (gray bars). Bars represent mean values of three replicates ± standard error. Bars represented by different letters are significantly different as calculated by LSD (p ≤ 0.05)
