  • 30 August 2000
Abstract. Pyoverdine, the yellow-green, water-soluble, fluorescent pigment of the fluorescent Pseudomonas species, is a powerful iron(III) scavenger and an efficient iron(III) transporter. As aExpand

Siderophore-mediated iron acquisition in the entomopathogenic bacterium Pseudomonas entomophila L48 and its close relative Pseudomonas putida KT2440
Pseudomonas entomophila L48 is a recently identified entomopathogenic bacterium which, upon ingestion, kills Drosophila melanogaster, and is closely related to P. putida. The complete genome of thisExpand

Hydroxamate siderophores of root nodule bacteria
Abstract Sixty strains of root nodule bacteria were screened for siderophore production in low-iron broth, among them 40 strains from the Australian Inoculants Research and Control Service (AIRCS)Expand

Study of pyoverdine type and production by Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from cystic fibrosis patients: prevalence of type II pyoverdine isolates and accumulation of pyoverdine-negative mutations
Abstract. The lungs of cystic fibrosis patients are frequently colonized by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which produces high-affinity fluorescent peptidic siderophores, pyoverdines. Three pyoverdinesExpand

The Pseudomonas siderophore quinolobactin is synthesized from xanthurenic acid, an intermediate of the kynurenine pathway
To cope with iron deficiency fluorescent pseu‐domonads produce pyoverdines which are complex peptidic siderophores that very efficiently scavenge iron. In addition to pyoverdine some species alsoExpand

Siderotyping of fluorescent Pseudomonas: molecular mass determination by mass spectrometry as a powerful pyoverdine siderotyping method
The numerous pyoverdines so far characterized as siderophores of fluorescent Pseudomonas could be usually differentiated one from each others by the two physico-chemical and physiological methods ofExpand

Pseudomonas salomonii sp. nov., pathogenic on garlic, and Pseudomonas palleroniana sp. nov., isolated from rice.
A total of 26 strains, including 15 strains isolated from garlic plants with the typical symptoms of 'Café au lait' disease and 11 strains isolated from diseased or healthy rice seeds and sheathsExpand

Mapping of mutations affecting pyoverdine production in Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Pyoverdine, the yellow-green fluorescent pigment produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, is a highly efficient siderophore. Pyoverdine-deficient (pvd) mutants of P. aeruginosa PAO isolated afterExpand

Iron requirement and search for siderophores in lactic acid bacteria
Twenty-three strains of lactic acid bacteria belonging to the genera Lactobacillus, Lactococcus, Leuconostoc, Pediococcus or Carnobacterium, were studied for growth and siderophore production underExpand

Ornibactins—a new family of siderophores from Pseudomonas
Novel linear hydroxamate/hydroxycarboxylate siderophores from strains of Pseudomonas cepacia were isolated and named ornibactins. The ornibactins represent modified tetrapeptide siderophores,Expand
