(*) Tetracyclin-resistant derivatives of these strains, bearing cycA30::Tn10 and hfqΔ22-294 cycA30::Tn10, were constructed for using in this work. (**) These two plasmids contain the same insert. They were used without distinction assuming that the same amount of Hfq is overproduced due to autoregulation [16,17].
