|MBO3194-sup-0001-FIGS1.tif||image/tif||1087K||Figure S1. Arginine decarboxylase is required for optimal growth at pH 5 and response to arginine. Proteus mirabilis HI4320 (A) and the speA mutant (B) were diluted 1:100 in unbuffered LB (pH 7) versus LB adjusted to pH 5 with or without 10 mmol/L arginine. Cultures were incubated at 37°C with continuous shaking, and OD600 readings were taken every 15 min for 18 h. Error bars indicate mean ± SD for one representative experiment with five replicates.|
