the antimicrobial effect of propionate was due to its acidity [ 27 ]. Therefore, the community-acquired MRSAstrain USA300 was incubated with different concentrations of propionate. Whereas growth inhibition could be observed upon co-incubation with 25

Bacterial Strain and Preparation of MRSA Suspension
For our experiments, a MRSAstrain (strain ID: BfR 08S00974, ITU 1179) of the
