  • a All strains were derived from the wild-type strain of the Keio collection, BW25113 (39). This strain is called the wild type. All deletions developed for this study were constructed without leaving antibiotic resistance cassettes on the chromosome. Notice that Δpta ackA is an abbreviation for the Δpta ΔackA double mutant (a similar notation is used for the other strains). The Δacs pta ackA::ackAwt strain, restoring the original ackA gene, was used as a control.
