The contents of the arabinose and rhamnose in BX were less than 1% each, but the arabinose content in OX was 11.
2013) used a cocktail of hemicellulolytic enzymes, endo(1-4)- [beta]-xylanase, [beta]-xylosidase, and [alpha]-L-arabinofuranosidases for saccharification to remove arabinose and degrade the xylan backbone and further incubated a fraction with apolar oligosaccharides which had not been hydrolyzed with Ultraflo L and AG-II- Hydrolase which contain ferulolyl esterase activity to successfully remove some ferulolyl groups.
The innovations are numerous and wide ranging, from demonstrating the importance of fermenting renewable sugars like arabinose and xylose from plant biomass like corn bran or energy crops like switchgrass, to utilizing powerful new enzymes such as beta xylosidase and specialized yeast strains and other microorganisms that can improve the efficiency of sugar-to-ethanol conversions.

I have noticed that arabinose, a marker indicating yeast/fungal overgrowth on the organic acid test at the Great Plains Laboratory, is correlated with high amounts of oxalates (Figure 1).
The carbohydrate portion contains a variety of insoluble polysaccharides (containing rhamnose, arabinose, galactose, galacturonic acid, glucose, xylose, and mannose) and soluble components, such as sucrose, raffinose, and stachyose (Eldrige et al.
