Cytotoxicity levels of toxins A and B in the mfd mutant. Cultures of 630Δerm, the mfd mutant or the complement were grown in TY or TYG media. Cell lysates and culture supernatants were prepared at various time points. Samples were normalized for optical density of the culture and analyzed for the presence of toxins A and B by cytotoxicity on HT29 cells (toxin A) or Vero cells (toxin B). Panels: a bacterial lysates on Vero cells; b bacterial supernatants on Vero cells; c bacterial lysates on HT29 cells; d bacterial supernatants on HT29 cells. Samples were standardized by OD at point of collection. , 630Δerm;mfd mutant; ▲ complement. Data represents the mean of two biological repeats and at least two technical repeats and error bars represent standard deviations
