Comparison of growth with isobutyraldehyde stress. Time courses for the growth of E. coli strain AL626 (JCL260 ΔyqhD ΔadhP ΔeutG ΔyiaY ΔyjgB ΔbetA ΔfucO) in the presence of 0 (black), 0.1 (orange), 1 (blue), and 10 g/L (red) isobutyraldehyde in 15 ml screw-cap tubes. Optical density (OD) measurements taken every hour for 4 hours at 600 nm. Error bars represent the standard deviation of triplicate experiments.
