Methanobactin (mb) is a low molecular mass copper-binding molecule analogous to iron-binding siderophores. The molecule is produced by many methanotrophic or methane oxidizing bacteria (MOB), but has only been characterized to date in one MOB, Methylosinus trichosporium OB3b. To explore the potential molecular diversity in this novel class of metal binding compound, the spectral (UV-visible, fluorescent, and electron paramagnetic resonance) and thermodynamic properties of mb from two… CONTINUE READING
