Fifty-three strains of M. avium and related species all produced one or more exochelins, the extracellular iron-binding compounds of the mycobacteria, when grown iron deficiently. Only those strains which could grow without the addition of mycobactin (i.e., mycobactin independent) produced mycobactin, the intracellular iron-binding compound of the… CONTINUE READING
