Levels of LVFX-resistance of E. coli gyrA, Δ lon and gyrA, parC , Δ lon mutants. (A), (B), (C) and (D) show the results of spot testing with the agar plates containing 0 μg/ml, 0.0125 μg/ml, 0.025 μg/ml, and 0.10 μg/ml LVFX, respectively. Bacterial strains used are as follows: a, W3110 (lon+) and CS5140 (Δlon); b, CS5086 (lon+) and CS5216 (Δlon); c, CS5217 (lon+) and CS5218 (Δlon).
