  • a Modified from reference218. Columns: 1, growth without tellurite addition; +, good growth; ±, weak growth; −, inability to use substrate; 2, the highest rate and completeness of K2TeO3reduction (micrograms per milliliter). 3, MIC (micrograms per milliliter). NR, not reduced.

  • b RO, rich organic medium.
