(A) Histogram of the fraction of colonies wild type EPEC transformed with pPerB-GFP plasmid (wt/pPerB-GFP) and grown as in Figure 5. This experiment was repeated in at least two independent biological replicates. (B) Expression of perB using a transcriptional GFP reporter by time-lapse microscopy in BIG colonies of wild type EPEC (wt/pPerB-GFP) from (A) collected 1000 min after plating. PerB is expressed in a subpopulation of wild type EPEC. Similar results were obtained in two independent biological replicates and in at least three different locations. Scale bar: 15 μm.
