1. Micrococcus denitrificans excretes three catechol-containing compounds, which can bind iron, when grown aerobically and anaerobically in media deficient in iron, and anaerobically in medium with a high concentration of Ca2+. 2. One of these compounds was identified as 2,3-dihydroxybenzoic acid (compound I), and the other two were tentatively identified as N1N8-bis-(2,3-dihydroxybenzoyl)spermidine (compound II) and 2-hydroxybenzoyl-N-L-threonyl-N4[N1N8-bis-(2,3-dihydroxybenzoyl)]spermidine… CONTINUE READING
