Relative mRNA levels of four representative genes from flagella cluster of Xoo under OCA treatment were measured by qRT-PCR. OCA had no significant effect on the expression of these four genes within 1 hour. The expression of them was induced by OCA after 3 hours treatment, and the influence was more obviously after 6 hours. Values represent the levels of expression compared to that of bacterial cells without OCA treatment (for which the level of expression was set equal to 1.00). Asterisks indicate statistically significant differences in the expression levels between bacterial cells treated with or without OCA (Student’s t-test). ** P < 0.01
