Example sentences for: pdtc-producing

How can you use “pdtc-producing” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Pyridine-2,6-bis(thiocarboxylic acid) (pdtc) is an iron-regulated metabolite produced by certain pseudomonads that is highly reactive towards metals by virtue of a pair of thiocarboxylate groups and ring nitrogen that combine to form a non-specific, high affinity, tri-dentate ligand (Figure 1) [ 1 2 ] . The formation constants for Co, Cu, and Fe complexes of pdtc were determined to be greater than 10 33 [ 3 ] . Uptake studies using 59Fe showed that addition of pdtc to the growth medium of two different pdtc-producing pseudomonads increased the efficiency of iron uptake by 20% [ 1 ] . The contribution of pdtc to iron uptake may be due to the fact that the copper complex of pdtc (Cu:pdtc) has the ability to reduce both soluble and mineral forms of ferric iron) [ 1 ] . Not surprisingly, in light of its high affinity for essential metals, pdtc also exhibits antimicrobial activity [ 4 ] .
