Fluorescent pseudomonads secrete yellow-green siderophores named pyoverdines or pseudobactins. These comprise a dihydroxyquinoline derivative joined to a type-specific peptide and, usually, a carboxylic acid or amide. In Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain PAO1, six genes that encode proteins required for pyoverdine synthesis (pvd genes) have been identified previously. Expression of all of these genes requires an alternative sigma factor PvdS. The purpose of this research was to identify other genes… Expand
The acylase PvdQ has a conserved function among fluorescent Pseudomonas spp.
TLDR
Data strongly suggest that the role of PvdQ in pyoverdine biosynthesis is conserved among Pseudomonas spp. Expand
Synthesis of the siderophore pyoverdine in Pseudomonas aeruginosa involves a periplasmic maturation
TLDR
Using the fluorescent properties of PVDI, the pyoverdine produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1, it was able to show that PVD i was not present in the cytoplasm of the bacteria, but large amounts of a fluorescent PVDi precursor PVD Ip were stored in the periplasm. Expand
The biosynthesis of pyoverdines
TLDR
The current knowledge of pyoverdine biosynthesis is reviewed with a focus on the recent advancements regarding the periplasmic maturation and tailoring reactions. Expand
Characterization of a Gene Encoding an Acetylase Required for Pyoverdine Synthesis in Pseudomonas aeruginosa
TLDR
Characterization of pvdY(II) provides insights into the molecular basis for production of different pyoverdines by different strains of P. aeruginosa, and indicates that the PvdYII enzyme catalyzes acetylation of hydroxyornithine. Expand
Characterization and genetic manipulation of peptide synthetases in Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 in order to generate novel pyoverdines.
TLDR
This work reports the first successful rational in vivo modification of NRPS modules outside of Bacillus subtilis, and indicates that there are multiple elements contributing toward substrate specificity in NRPSs. Expand
Functional Characterization of an Aminotransferase Required for Pyoverdine Siderophore Biosynthesis in Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1
TLDR
Steady-state kinetic analysis with a novel coupled assay established that the enzyme adopts a ping-pong kinetic mechanism and has the highest specificity for alpha-ketoglutarate. Expand
Expression of L-ornithine Ndelta-oxygenase (PvdA) in fluorescent Pseudomonas species: an immunochemical and in silico study.
TLDR
The expression of recombinant L-ornithine-Ndelta-oxygenase (PvdA) from Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 is reported and silico domain scanning predicts an impressive conservation of putative cofactor and substrate binding domains. Expand
Genomics of pyoverdine-mediated iron uptake in pseudomonads.
Pyoverdines (PVDs) are complex siderophores produced by members of the fluorescent Pseudomonas. They comprise a dihydroxyquinoline fluorescent chromophore joined to a peptide of remarkably variableExpand
Genomic, genetic and structural analysis of pyoverdine-mediated iron acquisition in the plant growth-promoting bacterium Pseudomonas fluorescens SBW25
TLDR
A genomic, genetic and structural analysis of pyoverdine-mediated iron uptake by the plant growth-promoting bacterium P. fluorescens SBW25 reveals an extensively dispersed set of PVD genes in comparison to other sequenced Pseudomonas strains. Expand
Molecular characterisation of an endophyte showing a strong antagonistic activity against Pseudomonas syringae pv. actinidiae
TLDR
It is suggested that a molecule with antibiotic properties, produced by NRP synthetases, contributes to the antagonistic activity of P. synxantha. Expand

Involvement of a transformylase enzyme in siderophore synthesis in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
TLDR
The characterization of the pvdF gene, which is required for synthesis of the siderophore pyoverdine by Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain PAO1, is described, and the first example of involvement of a GART-type enzyme in synthesis of a secondary metabolite is provided. Expand
Nucleotide sequence of pvdD, a pyoverdine biosynthetic gene from Pseudomonas aeruginosa: PvdD has similarity to peptide synthetases
TLDR
A gene, pvdD, required for pyoverdine synthesis is sequenced, indicating that synthesis of the peptide moiety of py overdine proceeds by a nonribosomal mechanism. Expand
Novel pyoverdine biosynthesis gene(s) of Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO.
TLDR
Physical mapping indicated that the cloned DNA fragment is located at the 66-70 min region of the PAO chromosome, demonstrating that the restored apparent wild-type phenotype observed for the transconjugants was not the result of a true gene complementation, and structural determination of pseudoverdine as a coumarin derivative confirmed this view and sheds some light on the biosynthetic pathway of the py overdine chromophore. Expand
Genomics of the 35-kb pvd locus and analysis of novel pvdIJK genes implicated in pyoverdine biosynthesis in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
TLDR
The role of PvdI in pathogenicity was tested by measuring the in vivo growth of P. aeruginosa wild-type and mutant strains in a chronic lung infection rat model, and byasuring the competitive infectivity index into a neutropenic mice model, which confirmed the importance of PvDI in virulence and iron uptake. Expand
Characterisation of the pvdE gene which is required for pyoverdine synthesis in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
TLDR
The deduced amino acid sequence of pvdE indicates that the protein is a member of the ATP-binding-cassette (ABC) family of membrane transporter proteins, and this is the first example of the involvement of an ABC-type protein in siderophore synthesis. Expand
Cloning and characterization of pvdS, a gene required for pyoverdine synthesis in Pseudomonas aeruginosa: PvdS is probably an alternative sigma factor
TLDR
It is proposed that in iron-rich cells of P. aeruginosa, Fur binds to the pvdS promoter and prevents expression of the gene; under conditions of iron starvation, repression is relieved and PvdS is made, reprogramming the cells for pyoverdine synthesis. Expand
The pvc Gene Cluster ofPseudomonas aeruginosa: Role in Synthesis of the Pyoverdine Chromophore and Regulation by PtxR and PvdS
TLDR
A putative operon of four genes implicated in the synthesis of the chromophore moiety of the Pseudomonas aeruginosa siderophore pyoverdine, dubbed pvcABCD, was cloned and sequenced and mutational inactivation of the pvc genes abrogated py overdine biosynthesis. Expand

TLDR
A biosynthetic pathway based on a multienzyme thiotemplate mechanism allowing a step-by-step synthesis of the whole chromopeptide molecule can be postulated, indicating that pyoverdines might be considered as potent and easy-to-handle taxonomic markers for the fluorescent species of the genus Pseudomonas.

TLDR
Investigation of the DNA homology between the siderophore synthesis genes of an opportunist animal pathogen, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and three plant-associated species indicates that the cloned DNA lies in a locus previously identified as being involved in sidershipophore production. Expand
