Ferricrocin--an ectomycorrhizal siderophore of Cenococcum geophilum.

The ectomycorrhizal fungus Cenococcum geophilum was grown in low-iron medium and the excreted siderophores were extracted, purified and analyzed by HPLC. The principal hydroxamate siderophore produced, was identified as ferricrocin as confirmed by analytical HPLC, FAB-mass spectrometry and 1H- and 13C-NMR spectra. Although the occurrence of ferricrocin has been shown earlier to occur in the ericoid mycorrhizal fungi, this is the first report of ferricrocin in a true ectomycorrhizal fungus which is taxonomically related to the ascomycetes.[1]
