Phenotypic growth effect of anti-ftsZ PNA on MRSA and MRSP. Growth inhibition, an expected phenotypic effect of FtsZ depletion, was observed in NCTC 13142 at 7.5 μM of anti-ftsZ PNA, Z46 (a) but less so at the same concentration of the scrambled PNA, scrZ (b). Growth of HH-1 was equally inhibited at 2.5 μM of Z46 (c) and scrZ (d). Growth curves were plotted as mean OD550 ± SD, n = 3. Filled circles 0 μM, open squares 1 μM, open triangles 2.5 μM, filled squares 5 μM, filled triangles 7.5 μM
