Impact of antibiotics on the growth kinetics of S. aureus strain 8325-4 and correlation analysis between n-fold changes in bacterial density and fibronectin binding. Panel A. Bacterial suspensions were cultivated with or without antibiotics at half-MIC for 2 h as described above. Growth curves with and without antibiotics are represented as Δ log variations of the bacterial density. Panel B. Antibiotics-treated suspensions of S. aureus 8325-4 were assayed for fibronectin binding as described above. Spearman's rank correlation coefficient was calculated and no correlation was found between the bacterial density changes and fibronectin binding measures.
