Fig. 2. Total growth, biofilm formation and auto-aggregation activity of F. nucleatum. (A) F. nucleatum cells were incubated anaerobically in the presence of CSC at the indicated concentrations. Total growth of F. nucleatum cells (planktonic + biofilm cells) was measured as OD600 after a 24 h incubation. (B) Biofilm formation was measured by crystal violet staining and normalized by the total growth. Data are expressed as % of the normalized biofilm of control (100%). (C) Auto-aggregation was measured after 6 h, and data expressed as % of auto-aggregation of control (100%). Statistical significance determined by Mann–Whitney U test. *p < 0.05 versus control (CSC 0%); p < 0.05 versus CSC 6.25%; §p < 0.05 versus CSC 12.5%.
