Plasmodium yoelii subsp. yoelii (P. yoelii subsp. yoelii), strain YM is a highly virulent clone derived from isolate 17X. P. yoelii subsp. yoelii, strain 17X was isolated by I. Landau from wild-caught thicket rat (Thamnomys rutilans) no. 17X, at La Maboké Field Station in Central African Republic, April 1965.

The original 17X isolate was sent to Paris, France, then New York University (NYU). A highly virulent line, which emerged at NYU following removal of an ampoule of 17X from the deep-freeze, was sent to Edinburgh by M. Yoeli, where it was denoted YM and cloned in December 1973 by dilution into mice. Its profile is not known for most drugs but P. yoelii subsp. yoelii, strain YM is resistant to chloroquine. The genome assembly of P. yoelii subsp. yoelii, strain YM is available (GenBank: GCA_900002395.1).

Each vial of MRA-755 contains approximately 0.5 mL of P. yoelii subsp. yoelii infected mouse blood in Glycerolyte 57 solution (1:2). This item is host restricted and must be amplified in rodents.
