Table 2 Minimal bactericidal concentrations (MBC) of LL-37 against Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans strains

From: Lack of cathelicidin processing in Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome patients reveals essential role of LL-37 in periodontal homeostasis

A. actinomycetemcomitansstrain Origin MBC50(μg/mL) MBC90(μg/mL)
ATCC 33384 Laboratory strain 50 70
J1 Clinical isolate 20 70
J2 Clinical isolate 10 50
J3 Clinical isolate 20 50
J7 Clinical isolate 10 50
J11 Clinical isolate 70 >150
J76 Clinical isolate 20 70
  1. MBC50 and MBC90 indicate the minimal bactericidal concentration (MBC) values at which 50% and 90% of bacterial cells were killed, respectively.
