Caption: Staphylococcus bacteria. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a section through Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. This gram- positive spherical bacterium is undergoing cell division by mitosis. Two daughter cells have been produced as a result. Staphylococcus aureus commonly occurs on healthy human skin and mucous membranes, such as the lining of the mouth. It may, however, become pathogenic. It is commonly responsible for boils on the skin, infected hair follicles, for internal abscesses, and other acute suppurative infections. Magnification unknown.
