Isolation and structure elucidation of acinetobactin., a novel siderophore from Acinetobacter baumannii

Abstract

A novel siderophore, called acinetobactin, with both catecholate and hydroxamate functional groups was isolated from low-iron cultures of Acinetobacter baumannii ATCC 19606. The structure was elucidated by chemical degradation, fast-atom bombardment mass spectrometry and 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy. Acinetobactin was composed of ω-N-hydroxyhistamine… (More)
