A combination of the siderophores produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, pyochelin and pyoverdin, dramatically stimulates the growth of this bacterium in medium containing human transferrin. The amount of growth stimulation observed when each siderophore was added alone was only slightly less than the amount observed with the combination. Siderophore-defective mutants of strain PAO1 were isolated to test the effects of siderophore production on growth in transferrin and human serum. The pyoverdin… CONTINUE READING
