Escherichia coli (E. coli), strain UMN 026 was isolated from urine in 1999 from a female volunteer with acute cystitis in Minnesota.

E. coli, strain UMN 026 was deposited to the ATCC ® in 2005 by James R. Johnson, M.D., Department of Medicine, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. This strain can serve as a reference strain for E. coli Clonal Group A (CGA). The complete genome sequence of E. coli, strain UMN 026 is available (GenBank: CU928163).

Extraintestinal pathogenic Escherichia coli (ExPEC) possess virulence traits that allow them to invade, colonize, and induce disease in bodily sites outside of the gastrointestinal tract. Virulence factors of ExPEC belonging to a multidrug-resistant clonal group A (CGA) have been associated with urinary tract infections.

Each vial contains approximately 0.5 mL of bacterial culture supplemented with 10% glycerol.
