Single Cell Flow Cytometry Assay for Peptide Uptake by Bacteria
Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) can target the bacterial envelope or alternatively have intracellular targets. The latter requires uptake of the peptide by the bacterial cells. The bacterial internalization of an AMP can be evaluated by a ...
