Figure 6: Effect of CAgNCs on membrane integrity of V. tapetis. The cell membrane integrity was determined by measuring residual nucleic acids in bacterial supernatant. Two CAgNCs treatments i) MIC (50 µg/mL) and ii) above MIC (75 µg/mL) are compared with un-treated V. tapetis cells at 25 °C by measuring at 260 nm for 20 min interval. The bars indicate the mean ± S.D (n=3).
