Stationary phase survival. Survival of wild-type R. etli CNPAF512 (•) and the rel
mutant CMPG8705 (o) 1/100 inoculated at OD 600 nm 0.4 in TY medium (A) and AMS medium containing 10 mM succinate (B). At regular time points, samples were taken and plated in duplicate. The logarithmic value of the number of CFU/ml is given. The graphs are representative of experiments carried out independently 2 or 3 times.
