Caption: Aspergillus flavus. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the fungus Aspergillus flavus, an agent of liver cancer and aspergillosis. Here, two conidiophore fruiting bodies have conidia (spores) at their tip. Found in soil, this fungus produces aflatoxin, a virulent toxin which can contaminate stored food (notably carbohydrates). It is a toxin with long-term carcinogenic effects, known to induce liver cancer. A.flavus is also an Aspergillus species which causes aspergillosis, more common in the tropics. Aspergillosis is a respiratory infection in people with weakened lungs or lowered resistance, and may be fatal. Magnification: x200 at 35mm size. x1,750 at 8x12"
