Table 2 Strain virulence in the C. elegans infection model

From: Genomic acquisition of a capsular polysaccharide virulence cluster by non-pathogenic Burkholderia isolates

  Lethality
Strain > 24 h > 48 h > 72 h > 96 h
E. coli OP50 0/40 (0%) 0/40 (0%) 0/40 (0%) 0/40 (0%)
BtE264 4/39 ± 3 (5%) 31/39 ± 3 (80%) 36/39 ± 3 (92%) 39/39 (100%)
BtE555 2/41 ± 2 (4%) 10/39 ± 1 (27%) 36/39 ± 1 (93%) 39/39 (100%)
CPS KO 1/37 ± 1 (0%) 3/37 ± 2 (9%) 20/37 ± 5 (53%) 35/37 ± 2 (95%)
  1. Infection assays in C. elegans. Strains were monitored up to 5 days (120 h) post-infection. Death rates are shown both as raw counts and as percentages.
