Overview of transcriptional responses to iron starvation. The A. baumannii ATCC 17978 transcriptome was compared under iron replete and iron limiting conditions (200 μM DIP). All 3367 genes of the A. baumannii ATCC 17978 genome are represented on the X-axis, ordered according locus tag. Differential expression levels between iron replete and iron limiting conditions are displayed in Log2-values on the Y-axis. Up- and down-regulated genes under iron limiting conditions are displayed in the green and red sections, respectively. Gene names or functions have been provided for various highly differentially expressed genes, such as siderophore biosynthesis genes and the fumarases. The putative FUR binding sites displayed in the top section were identified as described in Methods and the nucleotide sequences are listed in Additional file 2.
