Caption: Listeria bacteria. Coloured Transmission Electron Micrograph (TEM) of a human cell seen with a group of Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. The human cell is coloured green; the rod-shaped bacteria are yellow. Listeria monocytogenes is a Gram-positive coccobacillus bacteria, and the cause of the human disease "listeriosis". The disease may result in a purulent meningitis, septicaemia, and a type of food poisoning. Pregnant women and people with lowered immunity are vulnerable. Researchers are studying the way the immune system responds to this bacteria. Photographed at the Molecular Genetics Laboratory, Pasteur Institute, Paris.
