Figure 3: Growth curve analysis of recombinant M. fortuitum strains. Growth curve analysis by OD measurement (line chart) and CFU count (bar chart) shows similar growth behavior of VC, HS, and HA strains. Statistical significance was checked by Student's t-test, in reference to the control strain VC. * denotes P < 0.05, ** denotes P < 0.01, and *** denotes P < 0.001. M. fortuitum: Mycobacterium fortuitum, OD: Optical density, CFU: Colony-forming units, VC: Vector control
