Mechanisms Of Bacterial Pathogenicity

FhuD1 and FhuD2 are lipoproteins thought to operate as binding proteins for hydroxamate siderophores and staphylobactin (Sebulsky et al., 2003). Assays with a Δ fhuCBG mutant revealed a big contribution to virulence in a murine kidney abscess model (Speziali et al., 2006). Dietary iron is taken up within the gut both as ferrous iron [after reduction of ferric iron by […]
