Campylobacter bacterium, TEM
Campylobacter bacterium. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a section through a Campylobacter sp. bacterium. This Gram-negative rod-shaped bacterium has a corkscrew-like motion driven by the hair-like flagellum at either end of the cell. Campylobacter bacteria are found in the human intestinal and reproductive tracts. Some species cause disease. Magnification unknown

This print from Science Photo Library showcases the intricate details of a Campylobacter bacterium. In this coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM), we are given a glimpse into the microscopic world of this Gram-negative rod-shaped bacterium. The image reveals a section through the bacterium, highlighting its unique corkscrew-like motion propelled by hair-like flagella at both ends of the cell. Campylobacter bacteria are commonly found in the human intestinal and reproductive tracts, playing significant roles in our biological systems. However, some species of Campylobacter can also cause diseases, making them subjects of great interest in bacteriology and microbiology research. The magnification used to capture this stunning image remains unknown but is undoubtedly powerful enough to reveal intricate structures within these microorganisms. By studying such detailed TEM images like this one, scientists gain valuable insights into the behavior and characteristics of bacterial cells. This extraordinary photograph serves as a reminder that even within seemingly invisible realms lies an awe-inspiring world teeming with life. It invites us to appreciate the beauty and complexity present in every corner of nature's vast tapestry, encouraging further exploration and understanding in fields such as microbiology and infectious diseases.
