mbo3137-sup-0001-FigS1.pdfapplication/PDF178KFigure S1. RT-qPCR validation of the microarray data. Expression of 13 genes was determined using RT-qPCR for wild type, ΔecfG1, ΔecfG2, and ΔecfG1ΔecfG2. The log2 transformed mean values of three replicates were used to report three different fold changes for each gene (Y-axis) compared to the respective microarray fold changes (X-axis). Black squares represent wild type versus ΔecfG1; light gray diamonds wild type versus ΔecfG2 and dark gray dots wild type versus ΔecfG1ΔecfG2

Venn diagram of all differentially expressed ncRNAs in ΔecfG1, ΔecfG2, and ΔecfG1ΔecfG2 strains compared to the wild-type strain R. etli CFN42. Upward- and downward-oriented arrows indicate gene induction and repression, respectively.
