TABLE 1

Congo red phenotypes of DGC and PDE mutantsa

TABLE 1
  • a The scale ranges from 0 to 3, where 0 is equivalent to the negative control (ΔpelA mutant), 1 is represented by the ΔwspR mutant, 2 is equivalent to the wild type, and 3 represents hyperbinding of Congo red (bifA mutant). Samples of each phenotype are shown in Fig. 3. A superscript “W” indicates a mutant that showed a wrinkly colony phenotype.
