CNB oil decreased cell viability and compromised cell membrane integrity in RSY150. a Growth curves of RSY150 exposed to 125, 62.5, 31.25 and 15.125 µg/mL of CNB oil, with absorbance measured at 30 min intervals to show the antifungal time course of the CNB oil. b Methylene blue staining of cells exposed to CNB concentrations as in (a) showed decreased cell viability. c Corresponding CFU counts of viable CNB exposed cells as compared to control. d Leakage of cellular content as a function of absorbance at 260 nm following exposure to CNB oil at concentrations as in (a) confirm a dose dependent compromise of the cell membrane in (a). GC indicates growth controls of cells incubated without CNB oil. Double asterisks represent statistical significance (p < 0.05)
