Metal acquisition is a vital microbial process in metal-scarce environments, such as inside a host. Using metabolomic exploration, targeted mutagenesis, and biochemical analysis, we discovered an operon in Staphylococcus aureus that encodes the different functions required for the biosynthesis and trafficking of a broad-spectrum metallophore related to(More)
28 Metal uptake is vital for all living organisms. In metal scarce conditions, a common bacterial 29 strategy consists in the biosynthesis of metallophores, their export in the extracellular medium 30 and the recovery of a metal-metallophore complex through dedicated membrane transporters. 31 Staphylopine is a recently described metallophore distantly(More)
