Table 2 Doubling times of wild type and 2.4.1∆ oxyR

From: Role of oxygen and the OxyR protein in the response to iron limitation in Rhodobacter sphaeroides

  Doubling times (h)
Strain Oxic Anoxic
Wild type 3.9 ± 0.2 12.5 ± 1.2
Wild type -Fe 4.3 ± 0.3 16.1 ± 1.5
2.4.1ΔoxyR 4.2 ± 0.2 22.4 ± 2.9
2.4.1ΔoxyR -Fe 4.3 ± 0.1 21.8 ± 2.2
  1. Doubling times were calculated for exponentially grown R. sphaeroides cultures in the presence and absence (-Fe) of iron in oxic or anoxic conditions. Doubling times are presented in hours (h) and represent the mean of at least three independent growth experiments.
