5-Iodoindole kills persister cells of human pathogens. Escherichia coli O157:H7 (EHEC, a), P. aeruginosa (b), methicillin-sensitive S. aureus (MSSA) 6538 (c), or a methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) 33591 (d) were exposed to rifampicin (100 μg mL−1), and then 5-iodoindole was treated for 3 h at 37 °C and 250 rpm. Cell viabilities were then determined. The experiments were performed in duplicate. N/D represents eradication below the limit of detection
