  1. W3110ΔxylB harboring plasmid pPCC207 expresses CbXR and XylFGH, while PC05ΔxylB harboring plasmid pPLOI3815 expresses CbXR. Strains were grown in the presence of glucose only (G) or in glucose plus xylose (GX), enabling xylose reduction during glucose metabolism. Standard deviations were less than 15% unless noted.
  2. a Reported in Table 4 of reference [26].
  3. b Resting cells were prepared as described [61]. Values reported were measured after 24 hours of biotransformation with cells suspended to OD600 = 2.0.
  4. c Reported as moles xylitol produced per mole glucose consumed.
