Gene expression levels by quantitative real-time PCR. Relative expression level of the selected genes Ccel_1736, Ccel_0127, Ccel_0128, Ccel_3435, and Ccel_0592 in wild-type (WT) and spo0A mutant grown on 10 g/l cellulose (A) and 5 g/l cellobiose (B) were compared by normalizing with the expression of the calibrator gene recA. The means and standard deviations were calculated from the values of three biological replicates. *Significant difference between WT and spo0A mutant (P <0.05, Student t-test).
