Siderophores play a vital role in the survival of bacteria, as they facilitate the transport of iron in low-concentration environments. Nature employs a variety of coordinating functional groups in siderophore scaffolds as a way of creating structural diversity. We have successfully shown that the pseudomonine synthetase can produce three distinct… CONTINUE READING
