How cell wall complexity influences saccharification efficiency in Miscanthus sinensis.

De Souza AP, Alvim Kamei CL, Torres AF, Pattathil S, Hahn MG, Trindade LM, Buckeridge MS - J. Exp. Bot. (2015)

Bottom Line: However, one of the key barriers to producing bioethanol is the lack of information about cell wall structure.Cell walls are thought to display compositional differences that lead to emergence of a very high level of complexity, resulting in great diversity in cell wall architectures.When saccharification efficiency was correlated negatively with lignin, the structural features of arabinoxylan and xyloglucan were found to contribute positively to hydrolysis.

Saccharification of three different genotypes (H0120, H0116, and H0198) of Miscanthus sinensis. (A) Percentage of the total cell wall glucose released after enzymatic hydrolysis (Glc-Con); (B) amount of glucose released based on dry biomass (Glc-Rel).

Figure 5: Saccharification of three different genotypes (H0120, H0116, and H0198) of Miscanthus sinensis. (A) Percentage of the total cell wall glucose released after enzymatic hydrolysis (Glc-Con); (B) amount of glucose released based on dry biomass (Glc-Rel). (This figure is available in colour at JXB online.)

Mentions: The saccharification efficiency of stems differed significantly among genotypes (Fig. 5). The H0198 genotype yielded the highest percentage of glucose conversion (22%) from the total available cell wall glucose (Fig. 5A). On the other hand, H0120 was the genotype that showed the lowest values of glucose conversion (12%). The same pattern of saccharification efficiency was observed when the data were expressed by the amount of glucose released from 1g of dry biomass (Fig. 5B).
