Figure 5

Contribution of trehalose to salinity and heat tolerance of R. etli. Cells of R. etli wild-type (black markers) and otsAch mutant (white markers) were grown in minimal medium B- with 0.0 or 0.2 M NaCl at 28°C (A) or 35°C (B). 10 g l-1 mannitol was used as the sole carbon source. Values shown are the mean of two replicas of each condition in three independent experiments ± SD (standard deviation).
