Staphylococcus aureus bacteria dividing Featured 17 Mar 1997 Print

Staphylococcus aureus bacteria dividing

Staphylococcus bacteria. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria (light blue), some undergoing cell division. These gram-positive spherical bacteria are often found in grape-like clusters (as seen here). Some cells have formed daughter cells after cell division. 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: x5, 000 at 35mm size
