Siderophores are low molecular weight, iron-chelating ligands produced by nearly all microorganisms. Fungi synthesize a wide range of hydroxamate siderophores. This review considers the chemical and biological aspects of these siderophores, their distribution amongst fungal genera and their possible applications. Siderophores function primarily as iron transport compounds. Expression of siderophore biosynthesis and the uptake systems is regulated by internal iron concentrations. Transport of… CONTINUE READING
