Term Information

Accession
GO:0046215
Name
siderophore catabolic process
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
siderophore breakdown, siderophore catabolism, siderophore degradation, siderochrome catabolism
Alternate IDs
None
Definition
The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the breakdown of 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.
