Aerobactin, a dihydroxamate siderophore produced by many strains of enteric bacteria, stimulated the growth of Neisseria gonorrhoeae FA19 and F62 in iron-limiting medium. However, gonococci did not produce detectable amounts of aerobactin in the Escherichia coli LG1522 aerobactin bioassay. We probed gonococcal genomic DNA with the cloned E. coli aerobactin biosynthesis (iucABCD), aerobactin receptor (iutA), and hydroxamate utilization (fhuCDB) genes. Hybridization was detected with fhuBdoi:10.17615/z0z1-gt85 fatcat:vlfjw6ucuzhhdi6i372jiwzynm
