Table 1 Measurements obtained from AFM height images of the BC composites

From: Attachment of Salmonella strains to a plant cell wall model is modulated by surface characteristics and not by specific carbohydrate interactions

  1. Data are presented as mean ± SD where n = 30. Different lowercase letters indicate significant differences between types of BC composites whereas absence of lowercase letters indicate no significant differences between types of BC composites within the same row (One-way ANOVA & Tukey’s pairwise comparison at p < 0.05)
