Effects of oxygen-radical pretreatment on CMC hydrolysis by cellulolytic enzymes in culture supernatant. Time-course of the release of reducing sugars from a oxygen-gas- or b oxygen-radical-pretreated CMC by enzymatic hydrolysis using culture supernatant and assayed using the DNS method. Error bars represent the mean ± standard error of the mean of three independent experiments. c Reaction products from pretreated CMC by enzymatic hydrolysis for 60 min were analyzed by reducing-sugar HPLC
