Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Brucella abortus, Gram-negative, coccobacillus prokaryote; causes bovine spontaneous abortion due to its rapid growth in the presence of erythritol (produced in the placenta). This is an example of tissue specificity. This zoonotic microorganism can pass from cattle to humans in contaminated dairy products.
