The iron-repressible outer membrane protein FyuA of Yersinia enterocolitica operates as a receptor with dual function: (i) as a receptor for the Y. pestis bacteriocin pesticin, and (ii) as a receptor for yersiniabactin, a siderophore that is produced by mouse-virulent Y. enterocolitica strains of biogroup IB. Cloning of the FyuA-encoding gene was achieved… CONTINUE READING
