Bacteria Characteristics Source
AAEC185 (-) Derived from E. coli K-12 strain, MM294, in which the fim operon is deleted. Also recA- [34]. Scott J. Hultgren, Washington Univ.
AAEC185/pSH2 The AAEC185 strain with the entire fim operon expressed from the pSH2 plasmid [35].  
AAEC072 Derived from E. coli K-12 strain, MG1655. Deletion of fimB-H [34, 36]. Ian Blomfield, Univ. of Kent
MG1655 Wild type E. coli K-12 (Fim+, but most cells are phased off for fimbrial expression  
KB91 Derived from E. coli K-12 strain, MG1655, where the fim operon was deleted to produce AAEC191A [34]. The fimbrial M1L variant of FimH derived from intestinal E. coli was then expressed rom AAEC191A [25]. Evgeni V. Sokurenko, Univ. of Washington
Nu14 E. coli cystitis isolate that expresses the M1H variant of FimH [37]. Evgeni V. Sokurenko
Univ. of Washington
J96 E. coli serotype O4:K6:45, a uropathogenic pyelonephritis isolate that expresses the M1H variant of FimH and P (PapG1 and G3) fimbriae. Obtained from American Type Culture Collection (ATCC).
