a) Effect of overexpression ofluxRon the growth rate ofV. scophthalmi.V. scophthalmiA089_23 (pMMB207)(black triangle)used as control strainvs V. scophthalmiA089_23 (pMMB207::luxR)(black square); b) Effect of expression of the lactonaseaiiAinV. scophthalmiA102. The growth rate was reduced in V. scophthalmi A089_23 overexpressing luxR (black square) compared to the control strain (black triangle) (Figure 1a), while strain A102_6.2 expressing the lactonase (black square) had a longer lag phase with respect to the control strain A102_pACYC (black triangle) (Figure 1b).
