The structure of the pyoverdin siderophore of Pseudomonas fluorescens 18.1 was elucidated by spectroscopic methods and chemical degradation. By cross feeding studies structurally closely related pyoverdins containing a C-terminal cyclopeptidic substructure were tested regarding the mutual recognition by the producing strains. Partial recognition of foreign pyoverdins was observed.
