Caption: Microsporidium parasite. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the microsporidium parasite Tubulinosema ratisbonensis. The main body (orange) has a flagellum (green) which it uses to propel itself through liquids. This is a pathogen of insects, specifically of fruit flies. It is also used to investigate the effects of protozoan parasite infections on mammalian cells, as well as insect cells. Magnification: x9800 when printed 10cm wide.
