Four strains of Streptococcus pyogenes were propagated at 37 °C in a reduced iron medium supplemented with Fe3+‐citrate to give concentrations of 1 through 11 micrograms per milliliter, in order to observe the effects of iron on growth and on the vitro production of Streptolysin S. Both growth and hemolysin production were observed to be influenced by medium iron concentration of which 1.2 μg per ml of iron was critical. Hemolysin was produced during the exponential phase of the growth cycle…

Thirteen strains of group B streptococci etiologically related to bovine infections were investigated in order to observe the effects of non‐hemoglobin iron and glucose on growth and hemolysin

Effect of iron limitation on the production of Streptolysin S (SLS) of Streptococcus pyogenes Group A

The effect of iron on the growth of Streptococcus pyogenes Group A and its influence on Streptolysisn S (SLS) production was investigated. Two strains of S. pyogenes used in this study C203S and

Partial characterization of Streptococcus suis type 2 hemolysin

TLDR
Data from this study indicate that S. suis type 2 hemolysin is a secreted or loosely cell bound, thermolabile molecule whose activity is growth condition dependent.

Study of streptococcal hemoprotein receptor (Shr) in iron acquisition and virulence of M1T1 group A streptococcus

TLDR
It is concluded that Shr augments GAS adherence to laminin, an important extracellular matrix attachment component, which contributes to GAS growth in human blood, and is required for full virulence of serotype M1T1 GAS in mouse models of invasive disease.

Inhibitory role of acyl homoserine lactones in hemolytic activity and viability of Streptococcus pyogenes M6 S165

TLDR
A previously unreported role for AHLs is demonstrated in S. pyogenes virulence, and bactericidal activity observed at higher concentrations was an energy-dependent process, constrained by the requirement of glucose and iron.

Effect of iron on cytolysin a expression in Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi

TLDR
It is concluded that the regulatory effect of iron on clyA expression is mainly at translational level, and free iron depletion may be one of the causes of S. Typhi-mediated induction of ClyA in vivo.

Mutation of luxS affects growth and virulence factor expression in Streptococcus pyogenes

TLDR
Results from this study suggest that luxS makes an important contribution to the regulation of S. pyogenes virulence factors.

Iron starvation causes release from the group A streptococcus of the ADP-ribosylating protein called plasmin receptor or surface glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate-dehydrogenase

TLDR
Using the chelating agent nitrilotriacetic acid, conditions for iron starvation of the important human pathogen Streptococcus pyogenes are established and it is determined that iron limitation results in the specific appearance of several new proteins in the culture supernatant.

Streptolysin S-like virulence factors: the continuing sagA

TLDR
The identification, genetics, biochemistry and various functions of SLS are described, and the shared features of the virulence-associated SLS-like peptides are discussed, as well as their place within the rapidly expanding family of thiazole/oxazole-modified microcins (TOMMs).

BIOSYNTHESIS OF HEMATIN COMPOUNDS IN A HEMIN REQUIRING STRAIN OF MICROCOCCUS PYOGENES VAR. AUREUS I

TLDR
The present study is very closely related to and based upon the previous results, a brief summary is indicated: the hemin requirement is not absolute, since in brain-heart infusion broth and similar liquid media hemin is not required for growth.

Use of transferrin-iron enterobactin complexes as the source of iron by serum-exposed bacteria

Two smooth and six rough strains of Salmonella typhimurium with progressively smaller amounts of sugar and protein in their outer membrane were tested for degree of virulence in normal and

Iron-Binding Catechols and Virulence in Escherichia coli

TLDR
Time studies indicated that leukemic and nonleukemic viruses caused similar patterns in the alteration of PHA-induced DNA synthesis, whereas lactic dehydrogenase virus, adenovirus, and polyoma virus induced an increase in DNA synthesis.

COMPARATIVE KINETICS OF HEMOLYSIS INDUCED BY BACTERIAL AND OTHER HEMOLYSINS

TLDR
The findings concerning the effect of concentration and temperature on the rate of hemolysis provide a basis for classifying hemolytic agents (Tables I and II).

Cellular streptolysin S-related hemolysins of group A Streptococcus C203S

TLDR
Results suggest that potential hemolysin is a cellular precursor to RNA-core SLS, suggesting that all have the same hemolytic moiety.

Production of RNA-dependent haemolysin by Haemophilus pleuropneumoniae.

TLDR
It is concluded that the haemolysin(s) produced by the neotype strain of H. pleuropneumoniae is distinct from, but closely related to both streptolysin S and the hahemolysin produced by Treponema hyodysenteriae.

Mechanisms of Pathogenesis in Listeria monocytogenes Infection I. Influence of Iron

  • C. Sword
  • Biology, Medicine
    Journal of bacteriology
  • 1966
TLDR
The results suggest that host iron metabolism may play a part in the onset and progress of Listeria infections, and the effects of ferric and ferrous iron as well as other cations on Listersia infection in mice were studied.

Differential effects of iron on the growth of Listeria monocytogenes: minimum requirements and mechanism of acquisition.

TLDR
It is proposed that this microorganism removes iron from Fe -transferrin-CO3-- by a reductive pathway, and it is suggested that this pathway is a nonspecific mechanism of iron acquisition.

The significance of iron in infection.

TLDR
Iron-binding proteins transferrin and lactoferrin appear to be essential for the bactericidal function of polymorphonuclear leukocytes against Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Liberation of heme compounds can enhance clinical infections.

Role of iron in bacterial infection.

TLDR
From the point of view of infection, a clear distinction must be made between the quantity of iron present in body fluids and its availability to bacteria, which is far too low for normal bacterial growth.
