Additional file 2 of Plant defensin antibacterial mode of action against Pseudomonas species

Additional file 2: Figure S2. MtDef5 γ-core motif peptide causes limited membrane permeabilization in both the PA4774::lux(a) and PA3553::lux(b) strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Observed fluorescence using optical filters set for SYTO 9 green-fluorescent staining (left), propidium iodine red-fluorescent staining (center), and the merged images (right). Green fluorescence reveals bacterial cells with intact membranes while red fluorescence reveals bacterial cells with damaged membranes. Scale bar is 5 μm.
