Degradation of Lignin-Containing Materials by Xylanase in Biopreparation of Cotton


Solubilization of lignin and carbohydrates from the lignin-holocellulose structure of cotton seed-coat fragments was investigated by UV/VIS spectrometry. Xylanase (Pulpzyme HC) pre-treatment partially destroyed the lignocellulosic structure of the seed-coat fragments, producing reducing sugars and soluble lignin in the supernatant. Furthermore, the pre… (More)
