Pyoverdine The core is modified by the addition of an amino acid chain of pyoverdine is composed of 6-14 amino acids. The chain of amino acids is built onto the chromophore core, and is synthesized via non-ribosomal peptide synthesis. As is common for non-ribsosomally synthesized peptides, pyoverdine frequently includes D-form amino acids and non-standard amino acids, such as "N"-5-formyl-"N"-5-hydroxyornithine. The peptide chain may also be partially (or completely) cyclized. This peptide chain provides the other four aspects of the hexadentate interaction, usually through hydroxamate and/or hydroxycarboxylate groups. This portion of the molecule is also crucial for interaction with the ferripyoverdine receptor (FpvA) that allows ferripyoverdine to be imported into the cell. The peptide chain produced by a given strain of "Pseudomonas" is currently thought to be invariant.
Hadacidin The hydroxylamino group of hydroxamic acids of fungal origin has a nitrogen with oxidation state of - 1. The hydroxylamino group is frequently donated by a hydroxylamino acid (N-hydroxyamino acid), such as 8-N-hydroxyornithine of the siderochromes. Hadacidin is the simplest known naturally occurring hydroxamic acid. This compound, isolated and characterized by Kaczka et al. (1962), seemed well suited for a study of the route of hydroxamic acid biosynthesis. The hydroxamate bond may be considered to be a peptide bond with an oxygen atom on the amide nitrogen, but there is no a priori reason to decide whether the oxygen atom is introduced before or after the formation of the amide bond. In the latter case, formylglycine would be an intermediate in hadacidin biosynthesis. N-Hydroxylation of an amide bond was reported by Cramer et al. (1960), who found that N-hydroxy-2-acetylaminofluorene was formed in the intact rat upon administration of 2-acetylaminofluorene. Nevertheless, this finding cannot be considered direct proof of N-hydroxylation of an amide bond because, as the authors point out, the acetyl group is labile in their experiments, and hydroxylation of the amino group might have occurred.
