Yersinia pestis (Y. pestis), strain PEXU2 (biovar Orientalis) was isolated from a rodent in Brazil in 1966.

Y. pestis, strain PEXU2 is known to contain the pMT1, pCD1 and pPCP1 virulence plasmids as well as the pgm locus. The presence of these three plasmids in NR-637 has been confirmed by PCR amplification of plasmid-specific sequences from extracted DNA.

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

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