Caption: False colour transmission electron micrograph of Proteus mirabilis, a rod-shaped, gram-negative, flagellate bacterium. Proteus species are commonly found in decaying organic material and in the intestines of animals, including humans. Under certain conditions some species will cause intestinal irritation. They are rarely responsible for primary infections, but are found in association with more pathogenic bacteria in conditions such as cystitis, peritonitis & some forms of diarrhoea. Proteus bacteria exhibit a rather variable morphology; they are named after the Greek god Proteus who could change form at will. Mag: x30,000 at 6x7cm, x15,000 at 35mm size.
