Pseudoverdin, a compound related to the pyoverdin chromophore from a Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain incapable to produce pyoverdins

Z Naturforsch C J Biosci. May-Jun 1993;48(5-6):425-9. doi: 10.1515/znc-1993-5-605.


From a genetically manipulated strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 15692 (PAO1 strain) a compound named pseudoverdin, 3-formylamino-6,7-dihydroxycoumarin, was obtained which is related to the typical pyoverdin chromophore and thus allows to shed some light on the biogenesis of the latter.
