The following data were erroneously omitted from Figure 4B, which reports glucose impacts on beta glucosidase kinetics. These data indicate the actual Km and Vmax values for the R. flavipes recombinant beta glucosidase in the absence (-) and presence (+) of 10 mM glucose.

Glucose Km Vmax
(-) 0.091 0.139
(+) 0.074 0.102
