Escherichia coli (E. coli) (EHEC) strain RIMD 0509952 was isolated from human feces in 1996.

The enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (E. coli; EHEC) strain RIMD 0509952 was isolated from a patient during an outbreak of hemorrhagic colitis and hemolytic uremic syndrome in Sakai City, Osaka Prefecture, Japan. E. coli, RIMD 0509952 and many other EHEC strains encode potent toxins, similar to those of Shigella dysenteriae, which can cause severe intestinal, kidney and central nervous system disease. E. coli, RIMD 0509952 carries two plasmid species: 1) pO157 (92,721 bp) and 2) pOSAK1 (3,306 bp). Virulence-associated genes are located on both the chromosome and pO157. The complete sequence of the chromosome (5,498,450 bp; GenBank: NC_002695), pO157 (GenBank: NC_002128) and pOSAK1 (GenBank: NC_002127) from E. coli strain RIMD 0509952 have been determined.

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