PMID:  1907814     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A convenient plate assay which is sensitive to medium pH has been developed to evaluate potential siderophores of Candida albicans. Adding a siderophore to a filter paper disk on chemically defined Lee's agar (final pH 7.2) seeded with the test strain reversed the growth inhibitory effects of the supplemented (25-100 micrograms/ml) iron chelator ethylenediaminedi(o-hydroxyphenylacetic acid), to provide a zone of growth stimulation. This bioassay has been used to demonstrate the structure-activity relationships of ferrichrome and several water-soluble hydroxamate peptide building blocks of this natural siderophore. Of all compounds so evaluated, ferrichrome exhibited the best activity.
