  • a  FaaA localization in the indicated strains was analyzed by immunogold EM, using an anti-c-Myc antibody followed by a secondary antibody conjugated to immunogold particles. Mean ± SEM values are reported.

  • b  The numbers of bacteria that were analyzed to generate the data were 45 for 60190 FaaA c-Myc, 123 for the 60190 faaA mutant, and 37 for 60190.
