Effect of hypoxia and low carbon content on M. smegmatis dormancy. M. smegmatis wild type, S1 (uvrA::tn611), S1-uvrA-Ms and S1-uvrA-Tb strains were grown in M9 minimal medium supplemented with glucose 0.2% until OD600nm = 1.0. Bacterial cultures were then serially diluted up to 10-5 and transferred to agar plates. After incubation at 37°C for 4-5 days for aerobic cultures, or 2 weeks for anaerobic cultures in an AnaeroGen gas pack system at 37°C followed by incubation under aerobic condition at 37°C for 4-5 days, plates were compared. ND = Non Diluted culture
