Table 1 Stress sensitivity of the control and the ΔatfA strains in surface cultures

From: Core oxidative stress response in Aspergillus nidulans

Growtha Stress exposures
MSB (0.12 mM) H2O2 (6 mM) tBOOH (0.8 mM) Diamide (2 mM) NaCl (0.6 M)
Colony diameter (%) (control strain) 82 ± 3 84 ± 6 70 ± 8 34 ± 3 56 ± 4
Colony diameter (%) (ΔatfA strain) 52 ± 3* 54 ± 6* 41 ± 6* 26 ± 4* 57 ± 4
  1. *Significant difference between the two strains was demonstrated using the Student’s t-test (p < 0.05)
  2. aGrowth was characterized with the diameter of the colonies recorded at 5 d. Colony diameters are given in the percentage of the colony diameter measured in untreated cultures. Mean ± S.D. values, calculated from 4 independent experiments are presented
