Cellulase and hemicellulase production by N. crassa and T. reesei RUT-C30 on the cellulose substrates. Performance was measured by analysis of culture supernatant aliquots taken after 3 and 6 days, respectively. Secreted protein was measured by Bradford assay, endo-glucanase activity by Azo-CMC assay and endo-xylanase activity by Azo-Xylanase assay as described in Methods. Values are the mean of biological triplicates. Error bars show standard deviation. Letters indicate data groups that are significantly different (separately for both fungi and sample days; one-way ANOVA, p-values < 0.05 were considered significant)
