Growth in TY medium supplemented with increasing concentrations of NaCl. Growth curves of wild-type R. etli CNPAF512 (black), rel
mutant CMPG8705 (squares) or CMPG8705 complemented with pCMPG8715 (black dashed line) were measured in a Bioscreen C for standard TY medium (A) and TY medium supplemented with 0.075 M NaCl (B). Standard deviations are typically 0.03–0.04 (5 repeats). The experiment was repeated 3 times and a representative graph is shown.
