Figure 1: CFU profile of Mycobacterium smegmatis cultures during prolonged exposure to moxifloxacin and under moxifloxacin-unexposed condition (a). Triphasic response of Mycobacterium smegmatis to 0.5 μg/ml (3.75 × MBC) MXF for 84 h (b). CFU profile of Mycobacterium smegmatis cultures unexposed to moxifloxacin for 84 h. CFU/ml on antibiotic-free plates (blue line) and antibiotic-containing plates (green line) (n = 3 biological replicates in each case). KP: Killing phase, ASP: Antibiotic-surviving phase, RGP: Regrowth phase, CFU: Colony-forming units, MXF: Moxifloxacin
