In this study, a strain of Anabaena flos‐aquae UTEX 1444 was cultivated in six different concentrations of iron (III). Cultures were extracted with organic solvents and analyzed using our dereplication strategy, based on the combined use of high‐resolution tandem mass spectrometry and molecular networking. The analysis showed the presence of the siderophores’ family, named synechobactins, only in the zero iron (III) treatment culture. Seven unknown synechobactin variants were present in the extract, and their structures have been determined by a careful HRMS/MS analysis. This study unveils the capability of Anabaena flos‐aquae UTEX 1444 to produce a large array of siderophores and may be a suitable model organism for a sustainable scale‐up exploitation of such bioactive molecules, for the bioremediation of contaminated ecosystems, as well as in drug discovery.

Abstract

In this study, a strain of Anabaena flos‐aquae UTEX 1444 was cultivated in six different concentrations of iron (III). Cultures were extracted with organic solvents and analyzed using our dereplication strategy, based on the combined use of high‐resolution tandem mass spectrometry and molecular networking. The analysis showed the presence of the siderophores’ family, named synechobactins, only in the zero iron (III) treatment culture. Seven unknown synechobactin variants were present in the extract, and their structures have been determined by a careful HRMS/MS analysis. This study unveils the capability of Anabaena flos‐aquae UTEX 1444 to produce a large array of siderophores and may be a suitable model organism for a sustainable scale‐up exploitation of such bioactive molecules, for the bioremediation of contaminated ecosystems, as well as in drug discovery.
