From the cultures of Photobacterium damselae subsp. piscicida, the aetiological agent of fish pasteurellosis, a new siderophore named piscibactin (1), was isolated as its gallium and iron(III) complexes along with a possible intermediate of its biosynthesis, prepiscibactin (2). Analysis of the gene cluster involved in the siderophore biosynthesis allowed the partial prediction of the structures. Thus, an NRPS-mediated mechanism similar to that for yersiniabactin was suggested by protein… CONTINUE READING
