Giemsa stained cells
The arrow in the Light microscope image showing ‘transparent’ round shape bodies observed adjacent to lysed Giemsa stained cells while the nucleus and cytoplasm are stained with purple and pink colour (x200). Image restricted by condenser to maximise core illumination.
Fixed cells on cover slips and stained with counterstain DAPI. Arrow point to the Spots of nuclear materials observed around the nucleus of cells in the image (x100).
TEM micrographs of C3A cells infected with unknown bacteria
Bacteria are engulfed by elongated microvilli from infected epithelial cells. High magnification showing partially lysed vacuole membrane containing bacteria, indicating the ability of bacteria to escape from the endocytic vacuoles.
