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.

Figure 6: Linear regression between lignin content (%) and saccharification efficiency (%) of three different genotypes (H0120, H0116, and H0198) of Miscanthus sinensis. (This figure is available in colour at JXB online.)

Mentions: Lignin affected saccharification efficiency of cell walls of the three genotypes differently (Fig. 6). Whereas H0116 and H0120 showed a clear negative correlation between saccharification efficiency and the percentage of lignin, the same was not observed for the H0198 genotype. This raised the question of whether in certain cases other factors such as polysaccharide composition might interfere more strongly with saccharification efficiency.
