Siderophore biosynthesis protein, conserved domain (IPR019432)

Short name: Siderophore_biosyn_cons_dom

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



This entry represents a conserved 45 residue region found in one of the proteins from a siderophore biosynthesis complex [PMID: 9266668]. The siderophore produced by this complex varies with species, e.g. alcaligin is produced in Bordetella, aerobactin in Escherichia coli and mycobactin in mycobacteria. The protein appears to catalyse N-acylation of the hydroxylamine group in N-hydroxyputrescine with succinyl CoA - an activated mono-thioester derivative of succinic acid that is an intermediate in the Krebs cycle [PMID: 15719346].
