Escherichia coli (E. coli), strain UMN 308 was isolated in 1999 from the large intestine of a female volunteer in Minnesota.

E. coli, strain UMN 308 was deposited to the ATCC ® in 2005 by James R. Johnson, M.D., Department of Medicine, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis.

Strain UMN 308 is an uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC) that produces G fimbriae, which is essential for promoting bacterial adherence to receptor structures present on host receptors. Bacterial adhesion to host epithelial cell surfaces is prerequisite for colonization of mammalian tissues by pathogenic bacteria.

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