Caption: Escherichia coli. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a section through a cell infected with Escherichia coli. This is a gram- negative bacilli (rod-shaped) bacterium. The bacteria (red) are grouped in clusters within the cell cytoplasm (blue). Cell organelles are yellow. While E. coli is a normal, harmless inhabitant of the human intestine, under certain conditions its numbers may increase, causing infection. In children, some strains cause gastroenteritis, while in adults it can result in "traveller's diarrhoea" and most urinary tract infections, such as cystitis. One strain, E. coli 0157, can be lethal. Magnification: x300 at 35mm size.
