Holocellulose structures from agro-industrial residues rely on main and side chain attacking enzymes with different specificities for complete hydrolysis. Combinations of crude enzymatic extracts from different fungal species, including Aspergillus terreus, Aspergillus oryzae, Aspergillus niger and Trichoderma longibrachiatum, were applied to sugar cane(More)
Enzymes constitute a major monetary cost in the bioconversion of holocellulose to ethanol. Identifying enzyme inhibitors and moderating their effects is one approach that may help to overcome this issue. Most inhibitors that reduce the hydrolysis activity of holocellulases are released as the holocellulosic biomass is broken down in the pretreatment and(More)
Hemicelluloses are a vast group of complex, non-cellulosic heteropolysaccharides that are classified according to the principal monosaccharides present in its structure. Xylan is the most abundant hemicellulose found in lignocellulosic biomass. In the current trend of a more effective utilization of lignocellulosic biomass and developments of(More)
