Survey of ferroxidase expression and siderophore production in clinical isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Huston, Wilhelmina M., Potter, Adam J., Jennings, Michael P., Rello, Jordi, Hauser, Alan R., & McEwan, Alastair G. (2004) Survey of ferroxidase expression and siderophore production in clinical isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 42(6), pp. 2806-2809.
Ferroxidase (encoded by the mco gene), a component of a ferrous iron uptake pathway in Pseudomonas aeruginosa, was detected in all of the 35 respiratory clinical isolates surveyed; in contrast, considerable variation in siderophore expression was observed. The ubiquitous expression of this periplasmic ferroxidase suggests that it plays a key role in iron uptake in this opportunistic pathogen.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
