Comparison of germination efficiency in 46 B. licheniformis strains. The relative decrease in absorbance (A600) in the spore suspension was measured 2 h after the addition of germinant (100 mM L-alanine). The strains NVH1032, NVH800, ATCC14580/DSM13 and NVH1112 were selected for further analysis (indicated with arrows).
