Term Information

Accession
GO:0009237
Name
siderophore metabolic process
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
siderophore metabolism, siderochrome metabolic process, siderochrome metabolism
Alternate IDs
None
Definition
The chemical reactions and pathways involving siderophores, low molecular weight Fe(III)-chelating substances made by aerobic or facultatively anaerobic bacteria, especially when growing under iron deficient conditions. The complexes of Fe(3+)-siderophores have very high stability constants and are taken up by specific transport systems by microorganisms; the subsequent release of iron requires enzymatic action.
