The chemical analyses of the extracellular compound. The samples and a PPIX standard (Sigma-Aldrich, St. Louis, MO) were dissolved in a solution containing 90% acetone and 10% 0.1 M NH4OH. a Electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry (ESI-MS/MS, precursor ion: 563.2-PPIX) analyses showing almost identical structure of the PPIX standard and the bacterial samples; b Ultraviolet-visible spectrograms of the bacterial extract (the hemH1 and hemH2 double mutant) and PPIX standard. The absorbance was measured at every 10 nm (nm) with a spectrometer (UV-1800, Mapada) and quartz cuvettes
