Caption: Transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of the bacterium Salmonella sp., a contaminant of food that causes food poisoning. The bacteria lodge in the intestines and multiply rapidly. The breakdown of the bacterial cells releases a toxin, which, in humans, causes vomiting, diarrhoea and headaches (gastroenteritis). A rod-shaped bacterium, Salmonella sp. moves by means of its flagellae, the long flowing filaments; their number varies according to the species.
