Metal selectivity by the virulence-associated yersiniabactin metallophore system.

Abstract

Uropathogenic Escherichia coli secrete siderophores during human infections. Although siderophores are classically defined by their ability to bind iron(III) ions, the virulence-associated siderophore yersiniabactin was recently found to bind divalent copper ions during urinary tract infections. Here we use a mass spectrometric approach to determine the… (More)
