  • a Gels were scanned and analyzed with ImageQuant software.

  • b Results were expressed as means ± standard errors of the means of three biological repeats and normalized by the induction (n-fold) of sigA.

  • c P values for H37Rv versus BCG comparisons were compared using a two-tailed t test. P values relating to significant species-related differences in response to starvation are shown in bold.
