  • a The data shown are for all P. aeruginosa genes with activation exceeding 30-fold in mucoid cells and with P values of <0.001.

  • b Genes are ordered by decreasing levels of induction.

  • c A Lpt designation indicates the presence of a typical lipoprotein signal sequence.

  • d PAO3692 lptF was included based on a genetic linkage to PAO3691 lptE and a statistically significant induction (P < 0.005).
