Growth characteristics of P. syringae pv. syringae strain UMAF0158 and the derivatives mgoA and gacA mutants. (A) Growth of the wild type strain UMAF0158 and the mgoA (∆mgoA) and gacA (2βB7) mutants at 22ºC in PMS. At each time point, the bacterial density was estimated by serial dilutions and colony counts on plates of selective medium and expressed as log cfu ml-1 of culture. (B) UMAF0158 mangotoxin production at 22ºC in PMS. At each time point, the mangotoxin production was estimated using cell-free filtrate and represented as the previously defined toxic units (T.U.). The dashed line represents the detection limit of the technique. Mean values for three replicates are given; the error bars represent the standard errors of the mean.
