In Gram-negative bacteria, transport of ferric siderophores through outer membrane is a complex process that requires specific outer membrane transporters and energy-transducing TonB–ExbB–ExbD system in the cytoplasmic membrane. The genome of the non-siderophore-producing cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 encodes all putative components of the siderophore-mediated iron uptake system. So far, there has been no experimental evidence for the existence of such a pathway in this organism. On… CONTINUE READING
