Pyoluteorin is a small chlorinated pyrrol produced by several species of Pseudomonas, first reported in 1958. Pyoluteorin has a broad bioprofile, demonstrating antibiotic, antifungal and herbicidal activity. More recently, pyoluteorin has been investigated as a bio-pesticide and has been shown to modulate the levels of metabolites in Pseudomonas.
