Caption: Escherichia coli. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of Escherichia coli bacteria. They are Gram-negative rod-shaped bacilli of which some here have divided into two cells. E. coli belong to the group: Enterobacteriaceae. They occur normally in the gut flora of humans and warm blooded animals. Some strains are, however, pathogenic. They have been implicated in infant gastroenteritis and can cause meningitis in new born infants. Some strains produce enterotoxins and may cause 'traveller's diarrhoea' in adults. E.coli is also responsibile for some urinary tract infections and show resistance to some antibiotic drugs. Magnification: x6,000 at 35mm size.
