Campylobacter jejuni is a leading bacterial cause of food-borne illness in the developed world. Like most pathogens, C. jejuni requires iron that must be acquired from the host environment. Although the iron preference of the food-borne pathogen C. jejuni is not established, this organism possesses heme transport systems to acquire iron. ChaN is an iron-regulated lipoprotein from C. jejuni proposed to be associated with ChaR, an outer-membrane receptor. Mutation of PhuW, a ChaN orthologue in… CONTINUE READING
