Figure S1. The effect of 2,2'-dipyridyl with and without the addition of exogenous iron. Results of qPCR expression analysis of A. pleuropneumoniae serotype 2 (A) and serotype 6 (B) grown in media with 300 μM of 2,2'-dipyridyl only (dark blue bars) or with 300 μM of 2,2'-dipyridyl and 300 μM of ammonium iron(II) sulphate hexahydrate (light blue bars).
