Effects of sub-acute mercury exposure on growth of MG1655. a E. coli K12 MG1655 grown in MOPS minimal medium, unexposed (blue) or exposed to 3 μM HgCl2 (red) or 3 μM PMA (green) during mid-log phase. Asterisks indicate sampling times for RNA-seq. Error bars are standard error (SEM) of 3 biological replicates for each culture condition. See Additional file 1: Figure S1 for full growth curve. b Significantly differentially expressed genes (DEG) counts (up-regulated or down-regulated) for HgCl2 and PMA relative to unexposed control culture at each time point
