This review focuses on the properties of ferric iron surface receptors of Gram negative bacteria. We discuss the different strategies to acquire iron, and the fundamental role of these receptors in pathogenicity. The structure of some of these receptors, iron transport and regulation mechanisms are presented here.

Keywords: surface receptor, gram negative bacteria, ferric iron receptor
