Trypanosome protozoan, artwork

Trypanosome protozoan. Artwork of a section through a Trypanosoma congolense protozoan. This parasite is a cause of the disease nagana in cattle and other livestock in Africa. Seen within the cell are the nucleus, which contains the animal's genetic information and the nucleolus. A mitochondrion provides the cell with energy. Endoplasmic reticulum is the site of lipid and protein synthesis in the cell. The Golgi complex packages proteins. A flagella (orange) runs the length of the cell and is used for locomotion

Eyelash mite tails, SEM

Eyelash mite tails. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the tails (pink) of three eyelash, or follicle, mites (Demodex folliculorum), protruding from a human hair follicle. The hair shaft (upper right) is also seen. These harmless parasites infest follicles (depressions in the skin which contain the roots of hairs) around the eyelids, nose and in the ear canals of humans. One follicle may contain up to 25 growing mites. They feed on oily secretions from the skin's sebaceous glands, as well as dead skin cells. Infestation is usually symptomless, but, in some individuals, allergic reactions to the mites can cause hair loss and acne. Magnification: x250 at 6x7cm size

Anopheles mosquito

Anopheles mosquito. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of an Anopheles stephensi mosquito, the vector for the malaria parasite in Asia. The mosquito flies in search of a human or other animal from which it can suck blood. It lands gently on long, slender legs. The insect's head comprises two compound eyes (pink), two antennae (blue) and complex mouthparts. The proboscis (centre), contains the piercing and sucking instruments necessary to obtain a blood meal. In 2002, scientists created genetically- modified A. stephensi mosquitoes, in which the malaria parasite was unable to multiply, raising hopes that transmission of malaria can be stopped
