Escherichia coli strains produce a variety of structurally different siderophores of which enterobactin, aerobactin and yersiniabactin have been reported earlier to occur in strains of extraintestinal infections. In uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC) strains novel siderophores, named salmochelins, have recently been identified which contain C-glucosylated 2,3-dihydroxybenzoyl-L-serine (glucosyl-DHB-serine) residues connected in a linear (mono-, di- , trimeric) or cyclic form. We report here on a fast… CONTINUE READING
