Identification and characterization of iron-regulated Bordetella pertussis alcaligin siderophore biosynthesis genes.
(East Carolina University, 1996-08)
Bordetella bronchiseptica mutants BRM1, BRM6, and BRM9 fail to produce the native dihydroxamate siderophore alcaligin. A 4.5-kb BamHI-SmaI Bordetella pertussis genomic DNA fragment carried multiple genes required to restore ...
Transcriptional Analysis of the Bordetella Alcaligin Siderophore Biosynthesis Operon
(East Carolina University, 1998-02)
The alc gene cluster of Bordetella pertussis includes three genes, alcA, alcB, and alcC, which are involved in alcaligin siderophore biosynthesis in response to iron starvation. The production of AlcA, AlcB, and AlcC in ...
Essential Role of the Iron-Regulated Outer Membrane Receptor FauA in Alcaligin Siderophore-Mediated Iron Uptake in Bordetella Species
(East Carolina University, 1999-10)
Phenotypic analysis using heterologous host systems localized putative Bordetella pertussis ferric alcaligin transport genes and Fur-binding sequences to a 3.8-kb genetic region downstream from the alcR regulator gene. ...
