Growth curves of A. baumannii with varying iron concentrations. Growth under different iron concentrations was tested in Mueller-Hinton (MH) broth and MH supplemented with 2,2'-dipyridyl (DIP) to final concentrations of 100, 200 and 300 μM. Absorbance was measured every hour at OD600 for 6 hours; the data represent the average of three separate experiments and the error bars show the standard deviation.
