Alpha-Xylosidase: A New Enzyme for Enhancing Conversion of Lignocellulosic Biomass to Fermentable Sugars

Executive SummaryProducing cellulosic ethanol from biomass feedstock such as corn stover requires the breakdown of sturdy cell wall materials, including cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin, into fermentable sugars. This breakdown is facilitated commercially by various enzyme cocktails. However, the high cost of enzymes has been a major barrier to...
