Interaction Information:

Comment P. aeruginosa produces two major siderophores: pyochelin and pyoverdin. These siderophores bind iron efficiently and are then taken up by the bacteria through specific cell-surface receptors. The siderophores are major virulence factors important not only for providing iron to support bacterial metabolic processes but also for controlling the expression of other P. aeruginosa virulence factors, such as exotoxin A, endoprotease, and pyoverdine itself.
