Acquisition, transport, and storage of iron by pathogenic fungi

Acquisition, transport, and storage of iron by pathogenic fungi

Clinical Microbiology Reviews 12(3): 394-404

The acquisition, transport and storage of iron by pathogenic fungi (Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Cryptococcus neoformans, Candida albicans, Geotrichum candidum, Histoplasma capsulatum and Paracoccidioides brasiliensis) are reviewed, including the transport of siderophores and siderophores as pathogenetic factors.
