Gene expression induction of selected genes used as proxies for the fungal cellulolytic and hemicellulolytic response. Sucrose pre-grown N. crassa cultures were exposed to the celluloses or no carbon source for 4 h before RNA was harvested. Gene induction was measured by RT-qPCR. Shown is the mean fold-induction over the no carbon (No C) starvation condition derived from biological and technical triplicates. Error bars denote standard deviation. Letters indicate data groups that are significantly different (one-way ANOVA, p-values < 0.05 were considered significant)
