The toxic fermentation inhibitors in lignocellulosic hydrolysates raise serious problems for the microbial production of fuels and chemicals. Furfural is considered to be one of the most toxic compounds among these inhibitors. Here, we describe the detoxification of furfural in Corynebacterium glutamicum ATCC13032 under both aerobic and anaerobic(More)
BACKGROUND Bioethanol produced by the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is currently one of the most promising alternatives to conventional transport fuels. Lignocellulosic hemicelluloses obtained after hydrothermal pretreatment are important feedstock for bioethanol production. However, hemicellulosic materials cannot be directly fermented by yeast: xylan(More)
