From: Exploiting the inter-strain divergence of Fusarium oxysporum for microbial bioprocessing of lignocellulose to bioethanol

Figure 3

Acetic acid (A) and xylitol (B) produced as a by-product during bioethanol production by different strains of Fusarium oxysporum cultivated on a straw/bran lignocellulosic substrate (10:1 ratio of straw to bran). Fungal isolates were grown in solid-state culture on 1 g straw/bran supplemented with 5 ml-1 minimal medium, pH 7 (Mishra et al. 1984) (initial moisture content was 91% vw-1). Cultures were incubated at 35°C for 4 days of aerobic followed by 4 days of oxygen-limited conditions. Acetic acid and xylitol content of the culture supernatant were determined enzymatically using the Megazyme acetic acid and Xylitol assay kit respectively (Megazyme, Ireland) according to manufacturer's instruction. Bars indicate SEM (LSD0.05 acetic acid = 0.45478; LSD0.05 xylitol = 0.3004)
