Caption: Bacteria synthesizing a vaccine. Coloured Transmission electron micrograph of the bacteria Bacillus subtilis, genetically engineered to produce a protein vaccine. The protein is seen as red and purple coloured areas at the tips of the bacteria. B. subtilis is an aerobic rod- shaped Gram-positive bacterium, also known as the "Hay Bacillus". Here, bacteria are seen sectioned through at different angles. A gene of an outer membrane protein of a human pathogen has been cloned to these bacteria. As a result, the bacteria are reproducing this protein (to be used as a vaccine) by instructions of their own genetic material. Magnification:x33,600 at 6x4. 5cm size.
