Iron-uptake mutants of Neisseria gonorrhoeae strain were obtained following treatment with streptonigrin, and one such mutant (Fud14) was characterized. Uncomplicated gonorrhea is most commonly an acute urogenital infection involving the urethra in men and the endocervix in women of reproductive age. Upon entering the urogenital tract, Neisseria gonorrhoeae adheres to columnar epithelial cells, a step that presumably enables the gonococcus to withstand the flushing force of urine and the constant shedding of cervical mucus. Neisseria gonorrhoeae (the gonococcus [Gc]) is a strict human pathogen and is the sole causative agent of the human sexually transmitted disease gonorrhea. Gc and its closest relatives are only found naturally within the human population with no known animal, insect, or environmental reservoirs.
