Low temperature decreases the bacterial growth rate and favors phaseolotoxin production. Panel A shows the bacterial growth curves of P. syringae pv. phaseolicola NPS3121 grown at 18°C and 28°C. The low temperature decreases the growth rate of the bacterium and favors phaseolotoxin production (panel B). The circles indicate the growth stage in which the RNA extraction was performed.
