Effect of extracellular erythritol on growth of Synechocystis. Growth curve of wildtype Synechocystis, cultured in the presence of 0, 1, 10, 20, 30, 50 or 95 g/l meso-erythritol. Cells were grown under high intensity red/blue-light illumination (~70 μE/m2/s) in BG-11 supplemented with 10 mM TES-KOH (pH = 8) and 50 mM NaHCO3 at 30 °C. Error bars represent SD (n = 2)
