Uptake and competition experiments were performed with Neurospora crassa and Penicillium parvum by using 14C-labeled coprogen and 55Fe-labeled ferrichrome-type siderophores. Several siderophores of the ferrichrome family, such as ferrichrome, ferricrocin, ferrichrysin, and tetraglycyl-ferrichrome as well as the semisynthetic ferricrocin derivatives O-(phenyl-carbamoyl)-ferricrocin and O-(sulfanilyl-carbamoyl)-ferricrocin were taken up by N. crassa. The ferrichrome-type siderophores used vary in… CONTINUE READING
