Saccharification analysis of the wild-type and engineered plants in response to drought treatment. a Saccharification analysis of XE#55, X4#2 and X4#12. b Saccharification analysis of W4#1. c Saccharification analysis of pC4H:QsuB#1 and pC4H:QsuB#6. d Saccharification analysis of pTBL29:GUX1. Hot water treatment of dry stem material was followed by 72 h of saccharification with the CTec2 (Novozymes) enzyme mixture. Values show average ± SD (n shown in the figure). Black asterisks indicate significant differences in the well-watered condition compared to the wild type, and red asterisks indicate significant differences between well-watered condition and drought stress condition (t test, *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001)
