Correlation between the PmucEactivity and alginate overproduction in various strains of P. aeruginosa. A) Measurement of the PmucE activity in various mucoid laboratory and clinical strains. B) Measurement of alginate production (μg/ml/OD600) by the same set of strains as in A grown on PlA plates without carbenicillin for 24 h at 37°C. The algU(WT)-PAO1 represents the PAO1 strain contained the pHERD20T-algU(WT). The values reported in this figure represent an average of three independent experiments with standard error.
