DSM 4235
NCIMB 12045
Medium: LB-Lennox
Selection marker: Nalidixic acid
Temperature: 37°C
Genotype: F- λ- supE44 relA1 gyrA96 recA1 endA1 thi-1 hsdR17 (Source: ATCC 33849)
Phenotype: NalR rk- mk+
Properties: This plasmid host strain has a relatively high transformation frequency.
Further information: DH1, the parent strain of DH5α, was constructed as follows: thyA was introduced into MM294 by selection with 50 µg trimethoprim/ml. This strain (MMT) was mated with KL16-99 (an Hfr for thyA+ recA- (Low, 1968)) and the cells were plated on minimal glycerol plates, where neither parent will grow. Colonies growing on this medium were restreaked and assayed for UV sensitivity. An UV-sensitive isolate was designated DH2. The gyrA mutation was then introduced by selection for growth on 100 µg nalidixic acid/ml, and this recA deriative of MM294 was designated DH1.

There is a complete genome sequence of the DH1 strain available at Genbank (Accession number: CP001637.1).

The nalidixic acid resistance has been experimentally verified by BCCM/GeneCorner.
