The known siderophore vibrioferrin has been isolated from species of Marinobacter required for the growth of the toxic, bloom forming dinoflagellate Gymnodinium catenatum. A number of unique attributes of this siderophore, including its ability to bind boron, may provide important clues as to the nature of this and related algal-bacterial relationships.
