Iron plays an important role in the pathogenesis and rhizosphere competence of the fluorescent group of pseudomonads and it is, thus, fitting that the characteristic fluorescence of these organisms is attributable to an iron-chelating molecule, pyoverdine. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is likely the best-studied member of this group, and while it synthesizes two siderophores, pyochelin and pyoverdine, it is also able to use a number of heterologous siderophores of fungal and bacterial origin and its… CONTINUE READING
