HrpL-dependent expression of the matE (P matE ) and iaaL (P iaaL ) promoters in P. syringae pv. tomato (Pto) DC3000. Growth curves of wild-type Pto DC3000 transformed with the empty vector pMP220 (white) or with a vector carrying the promoter fusions P matE ::`lacZ (a) or P iaaL ::`lacZ (b) (black). Bars show the β-galactosidase activity obtained from P matE ::`lacZ (a) or P iaaL ::`lacZ (b) during the growth of Pto DC3000 derivatives on minimal M9 medium. Pto∆hrpL, ∆hrpL Pto DC3000 mutant (grey) carrying P matE ::`lacZ (a) or P iaaL ::`lacZ (b). The results shown are the means of three different experiments with their respective standard deviations
