metadata.artigo.dc.description.abstract: The aim of this study was to valorize the hemicellulose-rich liquid fraction (liquor) arising from hydrothermal pretreatment of sugarcane bagasse (SCB) through its utilization as an unconventional, soluble carbon source for the production of hemicellulases, namely xylanases and α-L-arabinofuranosidases (ABFases), by Aspergillus niger DCFS11. Through the use of factorial design, pretreatment conditions producing liquors optimized for either early- or late-phase enzyme production were identified. Subsequent deep characterization of liquor components using liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry was performed to identify compounds likely responsible for hemicellulase induction. SCB liquors arising from various pretreatment configurations induced up to 2- and 8.6-fold higher xylanase and ABFase production, respectively, by A. niger DCFS11 than raw SCB substrate owing to the strong inducing potential of arabinosylated xylooligosaccharides and free arabinose solubilized during pretreatment. Notably, unlike the severe pretreatment conditions required for maximum cellulose saccharification and ethanol yields during biomass conversion, low severity and low biomass loading are required if enzyme production from liquor is desired at early-phase growth with no additional detoxification steps. This suggests that for effective application in biorefineries, separate or multi-step processes would be required to optimize both hemicellulase production by A. niger DCFS11 and cellulose digestion. This work demonstrates the potential of hydrothermal pretreatment of lignocellulosic substrates as a tool to increase the production of enzymes by filamentous fungi.
