Caption: Lactobacillus bulgaricus bacterium. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a freeze-fractured section through a Lactobacillus bulgaricus bacterium. This Gram-positive bacillus (rod-shaped bacterium) is a natural inhabitant of the human mouth, stomach, intestines and vagina. Like all lactobacilli, it produces lactic acid through the fermentation of carbohydrates. This helps to maintain an acidic environment that is hostile to pathogenic (disease-causing) bacteria. Lactobacilli are also found in milk and fermented products such as yoghurts. Magnification unknown.
