Disease relevance of fiu

  • Expression of the A. actinomycetemcomitans fur gene product repressed fiu expression and siderophore production in E. coli [1].

High impact information on fiu


Other interactions of fiu

  • Mutants devoid of all six iron-regulated outer membrane proteins were no more resistant to the probe compounds than fiu cir or tonB strains [6].
