Comparison of MalI and LacI FROS probes. a The number of fluorescent foci were counted in 300 individual cells, grown in M9 minimal medium without arabinose, containing either the MalO or LacO arrays inserted adjacent to araBAD. b The distance to the nearest cell pole for foci in cells that contained 1 or 2 foci. For 2 foci analysis, the distance of the focus nearest to a pole was measured (closest) and the distance of the second focus to the same pole was then measured (furthest). Error bars represent the standard deviation
