Presence of the siderophores pyoverdine and pyochelin in the extracellular medium reduces toxic metal accumulation in Pseudomonas aeruginosa and increases bacterial metal tolerance.
In order to get access to iron, Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain PAO1 produces two major siderophores pyoverdine (PVD) and pyochelin (PCH). Both siderophores are able to chelate many other metals inExpand

New roles for bacterial siderophores in metal transport and tolerance.
Siderophores are chelators with extremely strong affinity for ferric iron and are best known for their capacity to feed microorganisms with this metal. Despite their preference for iron, they canExpand

New insights into the metal specificity of the Pseudomonas aeruginosa pyoverdine-iron uptake pathway.
Pyoverdine (PvdI) is the major siderophore secreted by Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAOI in order to get access to iron. After being loaded with iron in the extracellular medium, PvdI is transported acrossExpand

The Pseudomonas aeruginosa pyochelin-iron uptake pathway and its metal specificity.
Pyochelin (Pch) is one of the two major siderophores produced and secreted by Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 to assimilate iron. It chelates iron in the extracellular medium and transports it into theExpand

The PvdRT-OpmQ efflux pump controls the metal selectivity of the iron uptake pathway mediated by the siderophore pyoverdine in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Pyoverdine (PVD) is the major siderophore produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa for iron acquisition. PvdRT-OpmQ is an ATP-dependent efflux pump involved in the secretion of newly synthesized pyoverdineExpand

How do low doses of desferrioxamine B and EDTA affect the phytoextraction of metals in sunflower?
The aim of this study was to compare the efficiency of siderophore desferrioxamine B (DFOB) and EDTA in increasing the phytoextraction of metals in sunflower. A 28-day pot experiment was conducted inExpand

Brassica juncea tested on urban soils moderately contaminated by lead: Origin of contamination and effect of chelates
ABSTRACT Urban garden soils are a potential repository of heavy metal pollution, resulting from either anthropogenic or geogenic origin. The efficiency of phytoextraction was compared on two gardenExpand
