Leishmania major (L. major), strain NIH S (MHOM/SN/74/Seidman) [also referred to as NIH SD (MHOM/SN/74/SD)] was isolated in 1973 from a human patient with cutaneous leishmaniasis in Senegal, West Africa.

L. major, strain NIH S (MHOM/SN/74/Seidman) is a wild-type strain within the Leishmania subgenus and is used in the targeted deletion of leishmanolysis (gp63), a 63 kDa proteinase involved in the interaction of promastigotes and host macrophage receptors and evasion of the complement system.

Each vial of NR-48819 contains approximately 0.5 mL of cells in cryopreservative [5% dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO)].
