Caption: Chlamydia bacteria. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of Chlamydia psittaci bacteria inside a lung cell. The brown area at centre is an inclusion body containing bacteria (dark brown) at different stages in their life cycle. At left is the cell's nucleus (orange). A second Chlamydia inclusion body is beginning to form at top centre. Chlamydia species bacteria are unusual in that they are obligate intracellular parasites, living and reproducing only inside cells. This species infects birds and livestock and can be transmitted to humans, where it can cause miscarriage and lung disease. Magnification: x8400 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
