Hi Zara,
I know of an E. coli strain, SMR10, that may be available in Australia.  I 
can't find any reference to SM10, so this may be totally off base, but 
anyway it's never stopped me before.  The person who has published using 
SMR10 is Peter R. Reeves, Department of Microbiology, The University of 
Sydney, New South Wales 2006, Australia.  Also an email address was given: 
reeves at angis.su.oz.au.  The paper I'm looking at is Neal, Brown & Reeves. 
J. Bact. 1993. 175:7115-18.

I have never met the man, but have used a vectors that he has made.

Good Luck,

Ps. Great name
