CFP, but not YFP, excitation hinders growth of B. subtilis, in a σB-independent manner. A) Exponentially growing B. subtilis cells were subjected to 10 acquisitions in the YFP channel (1 s each) at 1 min intervals, followed by 3 acquisitions in the CFP channel (1 s each) at 1 min intervals. After 30 min, cell growth stopped and cells started to shrink. White bar 2 μm
