panCB genes do not fully restore the growth deficiency of CFNX186. Growth of R. etli CFN42 wild-type strain, its p42f-cured derivative CFNX186, CFNX186 complemented with the panCB genes (CFNX186-4) and CFNX186 complemented with a 20 kb EcoRI fragment of plasmid p42f containing the panC, panB, oxyR and katG genes (CFNX186-24) in: (a) minimal medium, (b) minimal medium supplemented with 1 μM pantothenate. Growth curves are the mean of at least three independent experiments; error bars represent standard deviations.
