HM-169 was deposited as Porphyromonas sp., strain 31_2, however, this organism has been reclassified since both the depositor's 16S ribosomal RNA gene sequence and the 16S ribosomal RNA gene sequence obtained from HM-169 align more favorably with Parabacteroides distasonis.

Parabacteroides distasonis (P. distasonis), strain 31_2 was isolated from a human fecal sample.

P. distasonis, strain 31_2 (HMP ID 1002) is a reference genome for The Human Microbiome Project (HMP). HMP is an initiative to identify and characterize human microbial flora. The complete genome for P. distasonis, strain 31_2 is currently being sequenced at the Broad Institute.

Each vial contains approximately 0.5 mL of bacterial culture in Modified Chopped Meat Medium supplemented with 10% glycerol.
