Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus), strain HIP15178 (also referred to as VRSA-5 and VRS5) was isolated in 2005 in Michigan, USA from a surgical site infection of a 58-year-old female who was recently treated with an eight-week course of vancomycin.

S. aureus, strain HIP15178 is a vancomycin-resistant S. aureus (VRSA) strain. S. aureus, strain HIP15178 was deposited as positive for mec (subtype II) and vanA; negative for vanB, vanC1, vanC2, vanD, vanE, PVL and arginine catabolic mobile element (ACME); pulsed-field type USA100; spa repeats TJMBMDMGMK; Ridom spa type t002. S. aureus, strain HIP15178 is a USA100 isolate. USA100 isolates have the same MLST profile (ST 5), SCCmec (subtype II) and spa motif (MDMGMK) and are usually resistant to erythromycin and spectinomycin as well as being multiresistant to other commonly used therapeutic agents. USA100 is the most prevalent U.S health care-associated pulsed-field type and is endemic in many U.S. hospitals. The complete genome sequence of S. aureus, strain HIP15178 is available (GenBank: AHBO00000000).

Each vial contains approximately 0.5 mL of bacterial culture in Brain Heart Infusion broth supplemented with 6 µg/mL vancomycin and 10% glycerol.

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