Viability and cell permeability assay of B. subtilis and E. coli treated with STMCs. Nominal concentrations of Ag/Cu Ag/Ni and Ag/Zn (15 μM/0.5 mM) by 24 h (37 °C). (A) SyBR-G B. subtilis positive cells represented as a measure of % of viability; whereas (B) B. subtilis PI positive cells are represented as a measure of % of permeability. (C) SyBR-G E. coli positive cells represented as a measure of % of viability; whereas (D) E. coli PI positive cells are represented as a measure of % of permeability Values represent mean ± SD (n = 3 experiments for each treatment). P values *P < 0.05 vs. Control, **P < 0.01 vs. Control.
