Table 2 Growth inhibition of B. cereus ATCC14579 and B. subtilis 168 strains containing BC4207 expression plasmid pATK33 or control plasmid pLM5 in the presence of various AS-48 concentrations.

From: Response of Bacillus cereus ATCC 14579 to challenges with sublethal concentrations of enterocin AS-48

Strain IPTGa MICb
B. cereus ATCC14579 pLM5 - 2.5
   + 2.5
  pATK33 - 2.5
   + 4.5*
B. subtilis 168 pLM5 - 1.0

  1. (a) Cells were growth in the absence (-) or presence (+) of IPTG (bold).
  2. (b) Minimal inhibitory concentrations are given in μg/ml of AS-48.
  3. * p-value < 0.005; > 6 cultures as determined with Student's t-test.
