Persister cell levels of different S. suis strains. Exponential (A) or stationary (B) grown S. suis strains were treated with 100-fold MIC of gentamicin over time. Persister cell levels were determined for the porcine serotype 2 isolate strain 10, a porcine serotype 9 isolate strain A3286/94, and a human serotype 2 isolate strain 05ZYH33. The values are means of two biological replicates and error bars indicate the standard deviation.
