Determining the reproducibility of the lag phase in WT cells. If the mathematical assumption τ = (1/μmax) ln (X2/X1) is correct, then τ as a function of ln (X2/X1) should yield a straight line with a slope of 1/μmax. τ shows a correlation to ln (X2/X1) with an R2 of 0.997 (p < 0.0001) and a μmax of 0.29 ± 0.02 h-1 for WT. The median and range over three independent experiments are plotted as black squares and error bars.
