Caption: Diphtheria bacterium. Coloured Transmission elec- tron micrograph (TEM) of a single Corynebacterium diphtheriae bacterium sectioned through. This is a Gram-positive rod- shaped bacillus bacterium; its DNA genetic material is seen in the centre (blue). Corynebacterium diphtheriae is generally located in the human throat, but may affect other mucous membranes and the skin. It may cause contriction in the throat passage, impeding normal breathing, sore throat and fever. The multiplying bacteria release toxins into the blood that may damage the heart and nerves. Treatment is with an antitoxin, and penicillin drugs. Vaccination is available. Magnification: x30,000 at 6x7cm size.
