The pyoverdine chromophore is formed in a reaction involving a two-electron oxidation, a conjugate addition, and a second two-electron oxidation. This oxidative cascade can be carried out with polyphenol oxidase (PPO), MnO(2), and cell-free extracts from Pseudomonas aeruginosa. [reaction: see text]
