  1. FAE-1 represent the termite (T. trinervoides) hindgut derived feruloyl estarase; Xyn10D represent GH10 xylanase from C. japonicus; XT6 represent GH10 xylanase from G. stearothermophilus, and Xyn2A represent GH11 xylanase from T. viride. U = µmol/min/mg protein for FAE-1 or µmol/h/mg proteins for xylanolytic enzymes; ND = not tested
