Burkholderia pseudomallei (B. pseudomallei), strain Bp82 is an attenuated strain of B. pseudomallei, strain 1026b. Strain Bp82 was attenuated via a partial deletion of the purM gene, resulting in adenine and thiamine auxotrophy.

B. pseudomallei, strain Bp82 is an adenine auxotroph that was engineered through deletion of a portion of the purM gene, which encodes phosphoribosyl formylglycinamide cycloligase. The product of the reaction catalyzed by this enzyme, aminoimidazole ribotide, is a precursor of de novo adenine and thiamine biosynthesis. The partial deletion of the purM gene was confirmed through PCR and sequencing. Strain Bp82 was tested and found to be avirulent in mouse and hamster models. The parent strain, 1026b, was originally isolated in 1993 from a blood culture of a female rice farmer with diabetes mellitus at Sappasithiprasong hospital in Ubon, Ratchathani, Thailand, and is available from BEI Resources as NR-4074.The complete genome sequence of B. pseudomallei, strain 1026b has been determined by two sequencing centers (GenBank: CP002833.1, CP002834.1 and CP004379.1, CP004380.1).

B. pseudomallei, strain Bp82 (ΔpurM) is excluded from Select Agent status. Please refer to the Select Agent Exclusions at the National Select Agent Registry website for more information.

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

Note: If homogeneity is required for your intended use, please purify prior to initiating work.
