Comparison of type IV pili gene expression (using qRT-PCR) in the wild-type and the ∆hrpB bacteria that were cultured in NB medium and in planta. a Relative expression levels on NB medium. b Relative expression levels in planta. The data are presented as the ratio (Log2-fold change) of the transcript number in ∆hrpB compared to the number in wild-type. The DNA gyrase subunit A-encoding gene gyrA was used as an endogenous control. Both qRT-PCR assays were repeated twice with similar results, and three independent biological replicates were performed each time
