Listeria monocytogenes (L. monocytogenes), strain J0161 was isolated from a case of human listeriosis linked to a multi-state outbreak from a turkey processing plant in the United States in 2000.

L. monocytogenes, strain J0161 is one of a few lineage II strains associated with human listeriosis. Phenotypic and genotypic typing of L. monocytogenes isolates from the 2000 outbreak were consistent with the human listeriosis isolates obtained from a previous outbreak linked to the same processing plant in 1988 (serotype 1/2a, slow rhamnose fermenter phenotype, ribotype DUP-1053A and indistinguishable PFGE). The complete genome of L. monocytogenes, strain J0161 has been drafted (GenBank: AARW03000000). For more sequencing information, refer to the Broad Institute's Listeria Genome Project.

Each vial contains approximately 0.5 mL of bacterial culture in 0.5X Brain Heart Infusion Broth supplemented with 10% glycerol.

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