Figure 7

Motilities of X . citri subsp. citri strains. Cells were inoculated onto NA plates supplemented with 0.25% or 0.60% agar from bacterial cultures at exponential stage and photographed after 3 days (0.25% agar plate) and 7 days (0.60% agar plate) of incubation at room temperature (22-23°C). WT: wild-type strain 306; M: gpsX mutant 223 G4 (gpsX-); MV: gpsX mutant 223G4V (gpsX-) with empty vector pUFR053; CM: complemented gpsX mutant C223G4 (gpsX+). The gpsX mutant 223 G4 (gpsX-) is reduced in cell motility, which could be restored to the wild-type level by providing a plasmid bearing the gpsX gene [i.e., the complemented strain C223G4 (gpsX+)]
