E. coli growth inside the host B. terrestris during the experiment.
Temporal pattern of bacterial growth was measured, using relative gene expression of bacterial fadD, during the whole experiment from the starting point (0 hours) to end concentration after 24 hours post-injection. Relative bacterial growth was plotted on a logarithmic scale to show the real differences at each time point. At each time point the mean and s.e. of three individuals is shown.
