When we further examined Stx phage induction by bAGPs with 3 stx2+/stx1- E.
High concentrations of chlortetracycline significantly increased the propagation of Stx phages in a concentration-dependent manner, whereas the level of Stx phage induction by oxytetracycline is already significantly high at 1 [micro]g/mL in comparison with higher concentrations of oxytetracycline (2-8 [micro]g/mL) and even the highest concentration of chlortetracycline used in the study (8 [micro]g/mL) (Figure 4).
Surprisingly, propagation of Stx phages by 1 [micro]g/mL oxytetracycline was comparable to that of 8 [micro]g/mL chlortetracycline (Figure 4), suggesting that oxytetracycline is highly effective in phage induction.
