BackgroundIron is an important nutrient required by all forms of life.In the case of human hosts,the free iron availability is 10-18M,which is far less than what is needed for the survival of the invading bacterial pathogen.To survive in such conditions, bacteria express new proteins in their outer membrane and also secrete iron chelators called siderophores.Results/ DiscussionAcinetobacter baumannii ATCC 19606, a nosocomial pathogen which grows under iron restricted conditions, expresses four… CONTINUE READING
