Listeria monocytogenes, the causative agent of listeriosis, is a virulent foodborne Gram-positive bacterial pathogen, with 20-30% mortality. It has a broad ability to transport iron, either in the form of ferric siderophores, or by extracting it from mammalian iron binding proteins. In this review we focus on the mechanisms of ferric siderophore and haem transport into the listerial cell. Despite the fact that it does not synthesize siderophores, L. monocytogenes transports ferric siderophores… CONTINUE READING
