The iron uptake systems of Plesiomonas shigelloides strains were determined. Siderophore production was not detected by chemical or biological assays, and the strains tested were unable to use enterobactin, aerobactin, or vibriobactin for growth in low-iron media. Both hemin and hemoglobin supported full growth of the bacteria in media lacking other iron sources, but neither transferrin nor lactoferrin served as a source of iron. Hemolysin was detected, and the production of hemolysin was iron… CONTINUE READING
