Metals are required for all life on earth and microbial pathogens are no exception to this rule. Accordingly, vertebrates have evolved to sequester these essential nutrients in a process known as nutritional immunity. The struggle for nutrient metal between host and pathogen has emerged as one of the most critical determinants of the outcome of infection.
