Growth inhibition of
1710a on LB agar at 37°C. (A)
B. thailandensis Bt6 (target) and B. pseudomallei 1710a (inhibitor) cells were mixed at different inhibitor to target cell ratios and viable counts were measured at 0 h and 24 h. (B) Time Course. Viable cell counts were determined at the indicated times using an inhibitor to target ratio of 1000:1 (C) Growth competition analysis of B. thailandensis Bt6 with six B. pseudomallei isolates was carried out at inhibitor to target cell ratios of 1000:1 at 0 h and 24 h. A control growth competition was carried out between B. thailandensis Bt6 and B. thailandensis E264.
