Image-based Fluorescence Recovery After Photobleaching (FRAP) to dissect vancomycin diffusion-reaction processes in Staphylococcus aureus biofilms

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


The diffusion capabilities of free fluorophores inside the heterogeneous three dimensional structure of Staphylococcus aureus biofilm were studied by an original image-based Fluorescence Recovery After Photobleaching method. The study was extended to BODIPY-vancomycin in order to better understand the mechanisms involved in the high tolerance of the bacteria embedded in a biofilm to the antibiotic.
