Correlating H_{2}O_{2}-induced loss of ATP production with bacterial viability. H_{2}O_{2}-induced disruption of ATP production correlated statistically with abolishment of
CFU viability for all organisms tested except PsA (p = 0.15) at concentrations up to 5 mM. Though the decline of ATP production in PsA
for this oxidant was statistically significant in this range, the percent change remains
independent of the percent reduction in CFU viability. Solid circles and lines: ATP
recovery after oxidant exposure. Open circles and dotted lines: CFU viability. Both
parameters are measured as percent relative to oxidant-free controls. P-values represent linear regression of the raw data values from percent ATP recovery
versus CFU viability. Values less than 0.05 were considered significant and denote
correlation between the parameters; values greater than 0.05 indicate independence
of the parameters. Error bars represent standard deviation of at least n = 3 experiments.
