Caption: E. coli bacteria. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the rod-shaped, Gram-negative bacteria, Escherichia coli (or E. coli). These bacteria are normal inhabitants of the human intestine and are usually harmless as pathogens. Under certain conditions, however, E. coli might increase in number and cause infection. Serotypes of E. coli are responsible for gastro-enteritis in children, particularly in tropical countries. In adults it is the cause of "traveller's diarrhoea"; and of 80% of all urinary tract infections. It is also the organism most used in genetic engineering studies. Magnification: x1,750 at 6x7cm size. x6,000 at 8x10 inch size.
