Growth of engineered strains on pre-treated wheat straw. Colony forming units (CFU) were measured after growing recombinant G. thermoglucosidasius strains on pre-treated wheat straw for 12 h. a CFU comparison of recombinant G. thermoglucosidasius expressing only CbCelA (strain ZB6d) with G. thermoglucosidasius BZ9 strain expressing CglT and CbCelA. b CFU comparison of recombinant G. thermoglucosidasius BZ10 strain expressing CglT, Cel6B and CtCelA with G. thermoglucosidasius expressing only either CtCelA or Cel6B. P**  0.01, P*** ≤ 0.0001 were calculated by one-way ANOVA followed by Sidak’s multiple comparisons test. c Growth curve of recombinant G. thermoglucosidasius BZ9 and BZ10 strains on 1% pre-treated wheat straw as a sole carbon source, with wild-type G. thermoglucosidasius served as a control. Results are shown as mean ± SEM of three biological replicates
