Caption: Transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a colony of Bacteroides gingivalis bacteria (previously named Bacteroides melaninogenicus spp. asaccharo- lyticus). These Gram-negative, anaerobic bacteria are rod-shaped cocco-bacilli. In this shadow pre- paration technique, the surface of the bacterial cell wall is seen. B.gingivalis is associated with gingivitis (gum disease) and other periodontal infections including ulcerative gingivitis and mouth abscesses. This bacteria is not confined to to the mouth and may infect other regions of the body. In humans it also occurs as normal harmless flora in the mouth, intestine & urogenital tract. Magnification: x88,000 at 9.5x12 inch size.
