  • a Biofilm isolate of Pseudomonas sp. strain VLB120 styC knockout mutant carrying the green fluorescent protein-encoding plasmid pHKT1 (23, 40, 47).

  • b The error of the maintenance coefficient is the standard error given by the Microsoft Excel function “linest” used for the least-squares fit.
