The plasmid pJM1 of Vibrio anguillarum harbors genes encoding proteins that enable the bacterial cell to survive under iron limiting conditions. A subset of these proteins are involved in the biosynthesis of the siderophore anguibactin and in the internalization of the ferric-siderophore into the cell cytosol. We have identified several genes encoding non-ribosomal peptide synthetases that catalyze the synthesis of anguibactin, these genes are: angB/G, angM, angN, angR, and angT.
