Biofilm formation under static conditions and chemical complementation by DPD of different concentrations. Biofilm growth of S. aureus WT (RN6390B), ΔluxS and ΔluxS complemented with different concentrations of chemically synthesized DPD in 24-well plates for 4 h under aerobic conditions (A1: 0.39 nM, A2: 3.9 nM, A3: 39 nM, A4: 390 nM). The cells that adhered to the plate after staining with crystal violet were measured by OD560 .
