Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus), strain RN4220/pG0400 (also referred to as NRS107) contains the plasmid pG0400 and is a transconjugant of mating between S. aureus, strain G03221 containing the plasmid pG0400 and S. aureus, strain RN4220NR. Strain G03221 was isolated in 1991 during an outbreak of mupirocin-resistant S. aureus on a dermatology ward of a university hospital in Connecticut, USA.

Plasmid pG0400 is a 33.8 kilobase plasmid that encodes resistance to mupirocin. S. aureus, strain RN4220/pG0400 is a methicillin-sensitive S. aureus (MSSA) strain. It was deposited as containing the plasmid pG0400; resistant to mupirocin, rifampicin and novobiocin; negative for mec; MLST sequence type (ST) 8; eGenomic spa type 59, eGenomic spa repeats YHGGFMBQBLO; Ridom spa type t211.
