Table 1 Relative expression of msa and sarA in the msa mutant.

From: The Role of msa in Staphylococcus aureus Biofilm Formation

   Biofilm Planktonic
   msa vs. COL Compl. vs. COL msa vs. COL Compl. vs. COL
Gene Function mature (12 hrs) mid late post mid late post
msa modulator of sarA 0.002 1.15 < 0.001 < 0.001 < 0.001 0.95 0.57 0.88
sarA staphylococcal accessory regulator 0.30 0.77 0.22 0.21 0.12 0.76 0.78 0.48
  1. Gene expression of msa and sarA in the msa mutant or the complemented mutant (Compl.) relative to wild-type (COL). Values represent the mean ratio of three independent experiments. Expression measurements were done in biofilm and three planktonic growth phases (mid-exponential, late-exponential and post-exponential).
