Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa), strain MRSN 552 was isolated in 2010 from human urine as part of a surveillance program in the United States.

P. aeruginosa, strain MRSN 552 was deposited as part of the MRSN Pseudomonas aeruginosa Diversity Panel available from BEI Resources as NR-51829. NR-51518 was deposited as multi-locus sequence type (MLST) ST 1654, sensitive to amikacin, aztreonam, cefepime, ceftazidime, ciprofloxacin, gentamicin, levofloxacin, piperacillin/ tazobactam and tobramycin and resistant to imipenem and meropenem. Strain MRSN 552 is reported to have a chromosomal aminoglycoside phosphotransferase gene [aph(3')-IIb; conferring resistance to kanamycin A and B, neomycin B and C, butirosin and seldomycin F5], two beta-lactamase genes (blaOXA-50 and blaPAO; conferring resistance to beta-lactams), a chloramphenicol acetyltransferase enzyme gene (cat B7; conferring resistance to chloramphenicol) and a fosfomycin-inactivating gene (fosA; conferring resistance to fosfomycin). The complete genome of P. aeruginosa, strain MRSN 552 is available (GenBank: RXTP00000000).

Note: Environmental and clinical isolates of P. aeruginosa frequently contain viruses known as prophages. During growth, some strains from the Pseudomonas aeruginosa Diversity Panel displayed plaques resulting from the activation of their inherent prophages. Please refer to the Certificate of Analysis to determine if phage plaques were observed for this strain.

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

Additional information and tools are available at PATRIC (Pathosystems Resource Integration Center).
