Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria infect the lungs of people with the inherited disease cystic fibrosis, greatly affecting the health of these patients. The bacteria need to take up iron to be able to grow. This research reveals for the first time how the bacteria obtain the iron they need when they are inside the patients. The research has implications for possible new therapies aimed at blocking iron uptake and hence growth of the bacteria.
