Escherichia coli (E. coli), strain AGT01 (serotype O127:H6) is a flagellin (fliC) insertion mutant of the wild type strain E2348/69.  Strain E2348/69 was isolated in 1969 during an outbreak of diarrhea in an infant nursery in Taunton, England.

Mutagenesis occurred through the insertion of a chloramphenicol-resistance gene (cat) into fliC.  fliC encodes for the flagellar filament structural protein, FliC which is required for flagella formation and may be involved in adhesion of the bacterium to the host cell. 

Each vial contains approximately 0.5 mL of bacterial culture in Tryptic Soy broth supplemented with 10% glycerol.
