(A) Survival of Galleria caterpillars injected with 3×105 CFU of ATCC 17978 sod2343::Km (red), ATCC 17978 (green) and PBS (blue). (B) Infection with 1.5×106 CFU of 07–095 and its sod2343::Km derivative. (C) Infection with 3×105 CFU of 07–102 and its sod2343::Km mutant. Results represent means and standard deviations of at least three independent experiments of 16 larvae per group.
