fsrB expression profile in OG1RF. For β-gal assays, samples were collected every hour from 3 to 8 hr, then at 10 and 24 hr after starting the culture (x axis). All sets of cultures presented were analyzed concurrently. The figure is a representative of at least two experiments. The growth curves are represented in brown for cells grown in BHI-air and purple for cells grown in TSBG (thin line when grown in air, dense line when grown in the presence of 5% CO2/0.1 M NaHCO3). OG1RF containing P
::lacZ was grown in BHI air (brown closed diamond), in TSBG- air (purple closed diamond) or in TSBG-5% CO2/0.1 M NaHCO3 (purple open diamond). A. OD600 nm readings. B. β-gal assays (β-gal units = OD420 nm/protein concentration in mg/ml).
