Effect on PAPI-1 transfer efficiency of the addition of OM (a) and LPS (b) preparations from PAO1 mutants lacking either CPA or OSA. Red, PAO1Δrmd (A-,B+); green, PAO1ΔalgC (A-, B+); blue, PAO1ΔwbpM (A+, B-); purple, PAO1Δwzx (A+,B-). Results were shown as mean ± SD for three independent experiments. Two-way ANOVA followed by Bonferroni post-test was used to analyze the data. All samples were compared to OM (a) or LPS (b) derived from PAO1- cells (ns: no significant difference; *, p < 0.05; **, p < 0.01; ***, p < 0.001)
