Effect of H
and HOCl on ompW expression. Wild type (14028s) exponentially growing cells were treated with H2O2 (1.5 mM) or NaOCl (530 μM) for 20 min and ompW, ompD, ompC and arcB mRNA levels were measured by qRT-PCR. Control cells received no treatment. 16S rRNA levels were used for normalization. Values represent the average of four independent experiments ± SD.
