  • The ferric enterobactin (FeEnt) receptor CfrA is present in the majority of Campylobacter jejuni isolates and is responsible for high-affinity iron acquisition. Our recent work and that of others strongly suggested the existence of another FeEnt uptake system in Campylobacter. Here we have identified and characterized a new FeEnt receptor (designated CfrB) using both in vitro and in vivo systems. CfrB, a homolog of C. jejuni NCTC 11168 Cj0444, shares approximately 34% of amino acid identity… CONTINUE READING
