Carboxymycobactin, in which the usual intracellular mycobactin siderophore is modified by possession of a carboxylic acid group, has been isolated as a second extracellular siderophore from culture filtrates of Mycobacterium smegmatis grown under iron-deficient conditions. (The primary siderophore is an exochelin which is a trihydroxamate, pentapeptide derivative). There may be up to 12 similar molecules produced with differing chain lengths that can be recognized by HPLC or HPTLC. The amount… CONTINUE READING
