1. The growth factor from Mycobacterium phlei is now named mycobactin P to distinguish it from related but chemically distinct growth factors from other species of mycobacteria. It is shown to comprise four closely similar chemical entities differing only in the fatty side chain. 2. The structure of the main component (85%) of mycobactin P has been established and the absolute configuration of all asymmetric centres determined. 3. Ferric mycobactin P has been crystallized; its structure is… Expand
Structure of mycobactin J
Mycobactin J-1, an iron chelate fromMycobacterium paratuberculosis, was characterized by mass spectrum and by1H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and13C NMR spectra of the parent molecule and ofExpand
Chemical Synthesis of Cell Wall Constituents of Mycobacterium tuberculosis
TLDR
This review summarizes the synthetic efforts of a quarter century of total synthesis and highlights how the synthesis layed the foundation for immunological studies as well as drove the field of organic synthesis and catalysis to efficiently access these complex natural products. Expand
Novel extracellular mycobactins, the carboxymycobactins from Mycobacterium avium
Abstract A series of novel extracellular siderophores, termed carboxymycobactins, have been isolated from M. avium as iron complexes and their structures determined. They are the first extracellularExpand

Abstract An X-ray study of the crystal structure of ferrimycobactin P has confirmed in detail Snow's structure and absolute stereochemistry for mycobactin P and has identified the iron coordinationExpand
Mycobacterial siderophore: A review on chemistry and biology of siderophore and its potential as a target for tuberculosis.
TLDR
This review article presents classification of siderophores, their role in transporting iron into the tubercular cell, biosynthesis of mycobactins, viability of sidersophore as a therapeutic target, and also focuses on overview on various approaches to target siderophile. Expand
Evaluation of growth promotion and inhibition from mycobactins and nonmycobacterial siderophores (Desferrioxamine and FR160) in Mycobacterium aurum
TLDR
Heterologous mycobactins and the synthetic FR160 promoted growth in Mycobacterium aurum in low concentrations and were otherwise highly inhibitory, as opposed to homologousmycobactsin, which was strictly growth promoting. Expand
A History of Iron Metabolism in the Mycobacteria
TLDR
The review focuses mainly on the research work carried out over the last century leaving the present work on iron uptake to be covered in other reviews in this monograph. Expand
Iron transport in Mycobacterium smegmatis: the role of mycobactin.
TLDR
A mechanism whereby mycobactin operates as a carrier for iron across the lipid envelope of theMycobacteria is described, and both compounds will be at their highest concentrations at the two lipid-water interfaces of the cell envelope: the outer and inner surfaces. Expand
Iron transport in Mycobacterium smegmatis: Uptake of iron from ferric citrate
TLDR
In mycobacterial growth medium 40 to 400 microM citrate was required to solubilize 2 microM 55Fe, and the uptake system with M. smegmatis was not inhibited by electron transport inhibitors, uncouplers of oxidative phosphorylation, or thiol reagents and was saturable with iron at approximately 35 microM. Expand
Salicylic acid biosynthesis and its control in Mycobacterium smegmatis.
TLDR
Synthesis of salicylic acid has been studied in washed cell suspensions and cell-free extracts of Mycobacterium smegmatis grown under iron-deficient conditions and the trivial name salicylate synthetase is proposed for the enzyme catalysing the final step from isochorismate. Expand
