Suppression of bacterial biofilm formation by iron limitation.

Abstract

The concentration of iron that permits bacterial differentiation generally differs from that needed for vegetative cell growth. An undesirable manifestation of differentiation is biofilm formation. The process in some, but not all, bacterial systems requires a higher level of iron than is needed for growth and it is suppressed by specific iron chelators… (More)
