Siderophore synthesis of Pseudomonas putida F1 was found to be regulated by quorum sensing since normalized siderophore production (per cell) increased 4.2-fold with cell density after the cells entered middle exponential phase; similarly, normalized siderophore concentrations in Pseudomonas aeruginosa JB2 increased 28-fold, and a 5.5-fold increase was seen for P. aeruginosa PAO1. Further evidence of the link between quorum sensing and siderophore synthesis of P. putida F1 was that the quorum… CONTINUE READING
