Recent achievements on siderophore production and application.

Abstract

Iron is the most abundant chemical element on Earth but its most common oxidation state is Fe(III) which presents a very low solubility under physiological conditions. During evolution, micro-organisms have developed sound strategies to acquire iron from both the environment and superior organisms, including direct uptake of iron ions from exogenous iron… (More)
