Iron(III) complexes of chrysobactin, the siderophore ofErwinia chrysanthemi


The phytopathogenic bacteriumErwinia chrysanthemi produces the monocatecholate siderophore chrysobactin under conditions of iron deprivation. Only the catecholate hydroxyl groups participate in metal coordination, and chrysobactin is therefore unable to provide full 1:1 coordination of Fe(III). The stoichiometry in aqueous solution is a variable dependent… (More)
