Abstract
Enterobactin is described in the literature as the typical iron-chelating c ompound (siderophore) produced by bacteria of the family Enterobacteriaceae . In the course of a HPLC with diode array detection screening programme fo r detection of novel secondary metabolites, enterobactin, its biosynthetic precursor 2,3-dihydroxy-N-benzoylserine and its linear dimer and trimer con densation products were found to be produced by two Streptomyces strains be sides the trihydroxamate-type siderophores desferri-ferrioxamine B and E.
