The alternative sigma factor PvdS is required by Pseudomonas aeruginosa for initiation of transcription from pyoverdine (pvd) promoters. Two divergent PvdS-dependent promoters (pvdE and pvdF) were characterized by deletion analysis, and the minimal promoter region for each included a sequence element, the iron starvation (IS) box, that is present in other(More)
Fluorescent pseudomonads produce yellow-green siderophores when grown under conditions of iron starvation. Here, the characterization of the pvdF gene, which is required for synthesis of the siderophore pyoverdine by Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain PAO1, is described. A P. aeruginosa pvdF mutant was constructed and found to be defective for production of(More)
