TABLE 1

Phenotypic test results for Bcc wt strains and pC3-null derivatives constructed for this studyh

TABLE 1
  • a The numbers given show the mean size of the zone of inhibition (mm) between bacteria and fungus in a dual-culture assay.

  • b The pathogenicity score was calculated as described in the Materials and Methods section; the maximum score was 3.

  • c Pathogenicity scores were calculated as described in the Materials and Methods section; the maximum score was 22.

  • d Proteolytic activity is given as a normalized value, calculated as described in the Materials and Methods section.

  • e Significance was determined using Student's t test for both antifungal and proteolytic activity assays and by the Breslow generalized Wilcoxon method for pathogenicity assays carried out in G. mellonella. Significance is indicated as follows: *, 0.01 ≤ P ≤ 0.05; **, 0.001 ≤ P ≤ 0.01; ***, P < 0.001; ns, not significant.

  • f The strain produced very little EPS.

  • g The EPS phenotype was rough and opaque, containing clear bubble areas.

  • h Color depth indicates the intensity of the phenotype tested. Results for strain H111 are included as a reference.
