Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus), strain RN6911 (also referred to as NRS151) is a derivative of RN6390B in which accessory gene regulator (agr) has been replaced with the tetracycline resistance gene (tetM). In turn, S. aureus, strain RN6390B (NRS147) was generated through UV and mutagenesis of S. aureus, strain NCTC8325 (NRS77).

S. aureus, strain RN6911 is a methicillin-sensitive S. aureus (MSSA) strain developed for research purposes. S. aureus, strain RN6911 was deposited as agr::tetM and resistant to tetracycline; negative for mec and rsbU; MLST sequence type (ST) 8; eGenomic spa type 59, eGenomic spa repeats YHGGFMBQBLO; Ridom spa type t211. Its parent strain, S. aureus RN6390, is the agr group I prototype strain from which the agr locus was first cloned.

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

Note: If homogeneity is required for your intended use, please purify prior to initiating work.
