Supplemental Information

Figure S1. Sequence of an amber-inserted EGFP expression construct

The amber-inserted EGFP expression sequence was cloned into pDONR221 using a standard Gateway reaction by BP recombination.

DOI: 10.7287/peerj.preprints.855v1/supp-1

Fig. S2. EGFP fluorescence of bacteria carrying the ΔMJR1 negative control plasmid

A bacterial strain carrying both the ΔMJR1 and the amber-inserted EGFP expression plasmid was evaluated. EGFP fluorescence was measured at various IY concentrations. Data are shown as mean  SEM. n = 3 independent experiments. Statistical analysis was performed using Welch’s t-test (α = 0.05). No significant differences were detected in EGFP fluorescence intensity.
