Pseudomonas donghuensis can excrete large quantities of iron chelating substances in iron-restricted environments. At least two kinds of iron-chelator can be found in the culture supernatant: fluorescent siderophores pyoverdins, and an ethyl acetate-extractable non-fluorescent substance. The non-fluorescent substance was the dominant contributor to the iron… CONTINUE READING
