Stenotrophomonas sp. bacteria, TEM
Stenotrophomonas maltophilia bacteria. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a sect- ion through Stenotrophomonas maltophilia bacteria. They are seen on a fractal background. These bacteria have also been placed in the genera Pseudomonas and Xanthomonas. The bacterium at upper right is dividing by binary fission to form two identical daughter cells. These Gram-negative rod-shaped (bacilli) bacteria live in soil, water and milk. As well as being pathogenic in plants, they can cause opportunistic infections in humans. Their long hair-like flagella are beaten to enable the bacteria to move. Magnification unknown

This print from Science Photo Library showcases Stenotrophomonas sp. bacteria, specifically Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, as seen through a coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM). The intricate image captures a section of these Gram-negative rod-shaped bacteria against a mesmerizing fractal background. In the upper right corner of the photo, one can observe a bacterium undergoing binary fission, dividing itself into two identical daughter cells. These fascinating microbes are known to inhabit various environments such as soil, water, and even milk. While they can be pathogenic in plants, they also pose a risk for opportunistic infections in humans. The long hair-like flagella of these bacteria play an essential role in their movement by beating rhythmically. This microscopic view offers us insight into the complex world of bacteriology and infectious diseases. It is worth noting that Stenotrophomonas maltophilia has been classified under other genera like Pseudomonas and Xanthomonas at different times throughout scientific research history. Although the magnification level used to capture this image remains unknown, it allows us to appreciate the stunning details within this tiny microbial universe. Science Photo Library continues to provide remarkable visuals that bridge the gap between science and art while expanding our understanding of microorganisms and their impact on our world.
