Cellulose production in six E. coli strains. Cellulose secretion was evaluated by the binding of calcofluor (CF), as visualized by colony fluorescence under ultraviolet light (fluorescence appears white in image). Five microliters of an overnight culture was spotted onto LB agar plates, containing 0.02% of CF and incubated for 24 h at 30 °C. Images were acquired using a G:BOX imaging system (Syngene, Frederick, MD)
