Figure 6: Triclosan-mediated bactericidal properties of PTA NPs. Growth curves of E. coli W3110 containing a triclosan resistant plasmid pFabK and a control plasmid pBluescript in the presence of PTA NPs (50 μg mL-1), PMMA NPs, and triclosan (100 μg mL-1). Error bars represent the standard deviation of three independent experiments conducted in triplicate.
