Method P.1715 left column 2nd paragraph: "Cell measurements and analyses were performed with Image Pro Plus version 3.01 software (Media Cybernetics, Silver Spring, Md.). Cell diameters of individual cells were calculated by measuring the cross-sectional area and dividing that value by the cell length."
Comments P.1719 left column 2nd paragraph: "The derived diameters of 92% of untreated wild-type E. coli CS109 cells clustered between 1.0 and 1.1 µm (Fig. 3A), and only 2% of the cells had diameters greater than 1.2µm (Table 2)." See BNID 103714, 104113, 104825, 104333
