Results of post-hoc experiments to investigate bacterial Amidohydrolase 2 gene expression and Beauveria bassiana susceptibility following treatment with the antimicrobial drug kanamycin (Kan). a Relative Amidohydrolase 2 expression following B. bassiana pathogen challenge with and without 48-h 5 % kan treatment. Control group represents the fold-change in Amidohydrolase 2 gene expression in pathogen challenged termites relative to unchallenged, water-treated controls. The 5 % Kan group represents the fold change in Amidohydrolase 2 gene expression in 5 % kan treated, pathogen challenged termites relative to an unchallenged, kanamycin-treated controls. b Normalized mortality at 7-days post inoculation with B. bassiana, following either water (control) or 5 % kan treatments. Bars represent normalized mortality to the respective controls of each group, i.e. water treated, unchallenged controls or 5 % kan treated, unchallenged controls. Error bars represent standard error of the mean across 3 biological replicates
