Effect of the lack of pSCL4 on β-lactam biosynthesis gene clusters expression. Transcription level of genes of SMC10, SMC9 and SMC11 antibiotic gene clusters. Expression of the genes for the biosynthesis of clavulanic acid (SMC10), clavams 5S (SMC9), and cephamycin C (SMC11) in S. clavuligerus pSCL4 is compared with those in S. clavuligerus ATCC 27064 (taken as 1.0). Bars represent the change of expression (fold) (base-2 logarithmic scale) at early exponential phase (black bars), exponential phase (grey bars) and stationary phase growth (white bars). The name of the genes is indicated over or below the bars
