Table S2. Late quorum-controlled genes that cannot be advanced by signal addition or LasR, RhlR, or RpoS overexpression. This table lists P. aeruginosa quorum-controlled genes that are not expressed early in growth even when acyl-HSL signals are added or when LasR, RhlR, or RpoS are expressed ectopically.
