  1. Media “A”: HA as sole carbon source, Media “B”: with additional carbon source (PDB)
  2. In the media type “A”, using HA as the sole carbon source, no significant growth was observed for any of the WRF strains. In media type “B” on the other hand, growth was observed. This shows that WRF strains could not utilize HA as the sole carbon source and needed additional carbon sources to grow
