59 %, which might be due to most of pentose sugar (xylose) left unfermented by Saccharomyces cerevisiae as cotton stalk hydrolysate contains both xylose and glucose.
In order to contribute to the viability of the process, alternative usages for these sugars must be created, such as the consortium with yeasts that ferment pentose and/or detoxification of the broth due to the likely presence of inhibitors of fermentation.
At the same time, FWGE increases direct glucose oxidation and ribose recycling in the pentose cycle--hallmarks of normal cell metabolism.
When no methylene blue is added, methemoglobin persists; but, incubation of the samples with methylene blue allows stimulation of the pentose phosphate pathway in subjects with normal G6PD levels.
Parallel to energy production, the conversion of fatty acids into carbohydrates has other functions such as the production of structural polysaccharides and nucleotides through the pentose phosphate pathway (Nelson & Cox, 2009).
This allows an adequate and timely glucose-6-phosphate (G6P) flux towards the pentose phosphate pathway (PPP) in the high-oxygenation state (HOS) or to the glycolytic one (EMP) in the low-oxygenation state (LOS) [11-13].

Geobacillus is capable of growth at high temperatures (up to 70 C), can rapidly metabolize a wide range of substrates (including pentose sugars and insoluble substrates) typically found in LCB hydrolysates and is thus capable of the simultaneous saccharification and fermentation of this feedstock.
