The iron scarcity in the host environment presents a challenge for infecting microorganisms. Fungi can assimilate iron via reductive, nonreductive, and host molecule-specific mechanisms. Recent developments in the characterization of iron acquisition mechanisms in the four best-studied fungal pathogens reveal commonalities and differences in those mechanisms as well as in their regulatory pathways.
