Abstract

SUMMARY: Representatives of 11 species of were examined for their ability to synthesize mycobactin, a lipid-soluble siderophore, following iron-limited growth on solidified glycerol/asparagine medium. and formed mycobactins, whereas the remaining species ( and ) failed to synthesize these compounds even under conditions of strictly iron-limited growth. The mycobactins from and showed close similarity by thin-layer chromatography and high-performance liquid chromatography and could be easily distinguished from that of
