Review of the occurrence of mycobactin dependence among mycobacteria species

Ann Rech Vet. 1984;15(3):405-9.

Abstract

Most mycobacteria are able to make mycobactin for themselves. But, Mycobacterium paratuberculosis, M. avium atypical like wood-pigeon mycobacteria and some strains of M. avium typical for the primary isolation, lack this capacity and require mycobactin for growth in the laboratory.
