Genetic Basis of Iron Assimilation in Pathogenic Escherichia coli

Progress in sanitation and medical practice have combined to eliminate certain classical bacteremic infections in the United States and throughout Europe. In these societies the common gram-negative bacilli now isolated in the clinic are those which are prominently associated with man, such as Escherichia coli, or are, like Pseudomonas aeruginosa, those which are equipped with special devices to take advantage of the compromised host (Young et al. 1982).
