The role of siderophores in the synthesis of serum iron
New treatments for infections that are caused by A. hydrophilia
The function of fever in warm-blooded animals
The mechanisms that ensure constant body temperature
Iron utilization in cold-blooded animals
That serum iron is produced through microbial synthesis
That microbial synthesis of siderophores in warm-blooded animals is more efficient at higher temperatures
That only iron bound to other substances can be used by bacteria
That there is a relationship between the synthesis of siderophores in bacteria of the genus Salmonella and environmental temperature
That bacteria of the genus Salmonella require iron as a nutrient
The body temperatures of warm-blooded animals cannot be easily controlled in the laboratory.
Warm-blooded animals require more iron in periods of stress than they do at other times.
Warm-blooded animals are more comfortable at an environmental temperature of 37°C than they are at a temperature of 42°C.
In warm-blooded animals, bacteria are responsible for the production of siderophores, which, in turn, make iron available to the animal.
In warm-blooded animals, infections that lead to fever are usually traceable to bacteria.
Administering a medication that lowers the animals' body temperature
Injecting the animals with an iron solution
Administering a medication that makes serum iron unavailable to the bacteria
Providing the animals with reduced-iron diets
Keeping the animals in an environment with temperatures higher than 37°C
