The fhuD2 gene encodes a lipoprotein that has previously been shown to be important for the utilization of iron(III)-hydroxamates by Staphylococcus aureus. We have studied the function of the FhuD2 protein in greater detail, and demonstrate here that the protein binds several iron(III)-hydroxamates. Mutagenesis of FhuD2 identified several residues that were important for the ability of the protein to function in iron(III)-hydroxamate transport. Several residues, notably Tyr-191, Trp-197, and… CONTINUE READING
