Overnight cultures of MO10 were diluted and grown with progressively reducing doses of mannose, or without mannose (PBS) for 24 hr at 30°C. Biofilm formation was quantified as before using crystal violet stain. Significant (p≤0.05, ANOVA) difference in biofilm formation between * indicated group and MO10 without mannose. Results are representative of three independent experiments.
