Caption: Chlamydia pneumoniae. Coloured transmission electron micrograph of a sectioned Chlamydia pneumoniae bacteria. This Gram-negative bacterium is pear-shaped, with a double cell wall (purple) and dark-staining cell contents. Chlamydia are intermediate in size between bacteria and viruses. They are obligate parasites living only inside cells. Chlamydia pneumoniae is known as the TWAR (Taiwan acute respiratory) strain. It was first isolated from the eye of a Taiwanese child. It causes pneumonia, bronchitis, sinusitis, a flu-like illness, and apparently is associated with heart attack. Treatment with antibiotics. Magnification: x58, 000 at 6x7cm size.
