Growth of EDL933, E. coli C, and mutants derived from them on different carbon sources. EDL933, E. coli C, and the indicated knockout mutants derived from them were streaked out on MOPS minimal agar plates with glucose (A), Aga (B), Gam (C), and GlcNAc (D) with NH4Cl as added nitrogen source. All plates, except Gam containing plates, were incubated at 37°C for 48 h. Gam plates were incubated at 30°C for 72 to 96 h. The description of the strains in the eight sectors of the plates is indicated in the diagram below (E).
