Campylobacter requires iron for successful colonization of the host. In the last 7 years, a wealth of data has been generated allowing detailed molecular characterization of Campylobacter iron-uptake systems. Several exogenous siderophores have been identified as sources of ferric iron for Campylobacter. Ferri-enterochelin uptake requires both the(More)
Germ-free mice inoculated with Vibrio cholerae became colonized with vibrios throughout the gastrointestinal tract, but they did not become ill. High vibrio concentrations in the feces were observed throughout the 3 months of observation in spite of the presence of serum antibody. Reciprocal conversions of both Inaba and Ogawa serotypes occurred regularly(More)
Campylobacter jejuni NCTC 11168 was capable of growth to levels comparable with FeSO4 in defined iron-limited medium (minimal essential medium alpha [MEMalpha]) containing ferrilactoferrin, ferritransferrin, or ferri-ovotransferrin. Iron was internalized in a contact-dependent manner, with 94% of cell-associated radioactivity from either 55Fe-loaded(More)
