Caption: Escherichia coli bacterium. Coloured computer- enhanced transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a section through an Escherichia coli bacterium. E. coli are Gram-negative bacilli (rod-shaped) bacteria. Long hair-like flagellae enable the bacterium to move. E. coli is a normal inhabitant of the human intestine. However, under certain conditions its numbers may increase, causing infection. It can cause "traveller's diarrhoea" and urinary tract infections such as cystitis. E. coli is widely used in genetic studies and genetic engineering. Magnification unknown.
