The chemolithoautotroph Nitrosomonas europaea has two genes predicted to encode outer-membrane (OM) ferrioxamine transporters. Expression of the ferrioxamine uptake system required induction, as shown by the shorter lag phase in ferrioxamine-containing cultures when ferrioxamine-exposed cells were used as an inoculum. The two OM ferrioxamine siderophore transporters encoded by foxA(1) (NE1097) and foxA(2) (NE1088) were produced only in cells grown in Fe-limited ferrioxamine-containing medium… CONTINUE READING
