Description

An efficient hydrolysis of lignocellulosic substrates to soluble sugars for biofuel production necessitates the interplay and synergistic interaction of multiple enzymes. An optimized enzyme mixture is crucial for reduced cost of the enzymatic hydrolysis step in a bioethanol production process and its composition will depend on the substrate and type of pretreatment used. In the present study, an experimental design was used to determine the optimal composition of a Trichoderma reesei enzyme mixture, comprising the main cellulase and hemicellulase activities, for the hydrolysis of steam-exploded wheat straw. Methods Six enzymes, CBH1 (Cel7a), CBH2 (Cel6a), EG1 (Cel7b), EG2 (Cel5a), as well as the xyloglucanase Cel74a and the xylanase XYN1 (Xyl11a) were purified from a T. reesei culture under lactose/xylose-induced conditions. Sugar release was followed in milliliter-scale hydrolysis assays for 48 hours and the influence of the mixture on initial conversion rates and final yields is assessed. Results The developed model could show that both responses were strongly correlated. Model predictions suggest that optimal hydrolysis yields can be obtained over a wide range of CBH1 to CBH2 ratios, but necessitates a high proportion of EG1 (13% to 25%) which cannot be replaced by EG2. Whereas 5% to 10% of the latter enzyme and a xylanase content above 6% are required for highest yields, these enzymes are predicted to be less important in the initial stage of hydrolysis. Conclusions The developed model could reliably predict hydrolysis yields of enzyme mixtures in the studied domain and highlighted the importance of the respective enzyme components in both the initial and the final hydrolysis phase of steam-exploded wheat straw.

Abstract Background:An efficient hydrolysis of lignocellulosic substrates to soluble sugars for biofuel production necessitates the interplay and synergistic interaction of multiple enzymes. An optimized enzyme mixture is crucial for reduced cost of the enzymatic hydrolysis step in a bioethanol production process and its composition will depend on the substrate and type of pretreatment used. In the present study, an experimental design was used to determine the optimal composition of aTrichoderma reeseienzyme mixture, comprising the main cellulase and hemicellulase activities, for the hydrolysis of steamexploded wheat straw. Methods:Six enzymes, CBH1 (Cel7a), CBH2 (Cel6a), EG1 (Cel7b), EG2 (Cel5a), as well as the xyloglucanase Cel74a and the xylanase XYN1 (Xyl11a) were purified from aT. reeseiculture under lactose/xyloseinduced conditions. Sugar release was followed in milliliterscale hydrolysis assays for 48 hours and the influence of the mixture on initial conversion rates and final yields is assessed.

Background The production of bioethanol from plant biomass is seen as a possible strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the current dependence of industrialized nations on declining fossil fuels. Renewable lignocellulo sic biomass is generally cheap and abundant and does not compete with food production as is the case for agricultural crops. Raw materials include wood residues, dedicated crops such as poplar or Miscanthus, agricul tural residues and waste paper. Wheat straw is one of

the most abundant crop residues in middle European countries with a production of over 130 million tons [1] and represents a lowcost source of lignocellulosic biomass. In nature, plant cell wall carbohydrates are hydrolyzed to soluble sugars by (hemi)cellulolytic enzymes from both bacteria and fungi, the latter being very efficient degraders [2].Trichoderma reeseiis the major fungus used for industrial cellulase production. The secreted cellulases comprise two cellobiohydrolases and eight endoglucanases from six glycoside hydrolase families [3] which act in a synergistic manner to degrade the plant biomass, together with betaglucosidases and hemicellu lases. In total, theT. reeseigenome contains 200
