The iron concentration of the culture medium used to prepare the inocula influenced the pathogenesis of mouse corneal infections by Pseudomonas aeruginosa. When the parental strain PAO1 was cultured in high-iron medium (5 micrograms of Fe per ml), it was less virulent than when it was cultured in low-iron medium (0.05 microgram of Fe per ml). The iron… CONTINUE READING
