Two TonB systems in Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae: their roles in iron acquisition and virulence.

Abstract

Iron acquisition in vivo by Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae depends upon a functional TonB system. Tonpitak et al. (W. Tonpitak, S. Thiede, W. Oswald, N. Baltes, and G.-F. Gerlach, Infect. Immun. 68:1164-1170, 2000) have described one such system, associated with tbpBA encoding the transferrin receptor, and here we report a second, termed tonB2. This gene… (More)
