Unraveling Siderophore Producing Bacteria from Plant Rhizosphere | Chapter 2 | Current Research Trends in Biological Science Vol. 1

Siderophores are those low molecular weight iron chelating components that are found to be secreted by a few bacteria located predominantly in the rhizosphere of leguminous plants. Their mechanism of action depends on the structure in which the siderophore is available. In the current study, an isolate SA6 was studied for its siderophore production which was found to be of carboxylate type. The optimal growth conditions for elevated siderophore production by SA6 were deliberated. The isolate was found to be enriched with plant growth promoting activities indicating its possible application in agriculture. Sequencing of the isolate has a 97% similarity index with Escherichia fergusonii.
