Control of ferric iron acquisition and reduction by Irr in the bacterium Bradyrhizobium japonicum
Iron utilization by bacteria in aerobic environments involves uptake as a ferric chelate from the environment by ferric siderophore receptors, followed by reduction to the ferrous form. Ferric siderophore receptors are ...
Regulation of manganese homeostasis in Bradyrhizobium japonicum
Manganese is an essential element for various cellular processes, however it is toxic at high concentrations. Thus, transport of the metal into cells need to be regulated. This thesis explores manganese transport and ...
