  1. Results are based on the intensity of expected bands observed by SDS-PAGE and by the BCA assay. U24 was purified as described from the indicated strains grown in 4 × 1 L of LB (or M9), induced at 18°C. N/A: Not applicable. Concentration is the mean ± s.d. of n = 4-6 independent assay measurements.
