  • a MM, minimal medium.

  • b Strains were grown to an OD600 nm of 1.0, and relative fluorescence was determined. Fluorescence observed when grown on minimal glucose medium was set to 100. Given are the average values of three independent experiments. Numbers within parentheses denote the standard deviation.

  • c These carbon sources led to significantly slower growth.
