Avian flu virus, TEM

Avian flu. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of influenza A virus particles (red). This is strain H5N1, which usually infects poultry, but began infecting humans in Hong Kong in 1997. Direct bird-human contact is necessary for transmission of the disease. However, the emergence of potent new strains, formed when strains from different animals exchange genetic information, can result in epidemics that kill millions. The blue cells are MDCK (Madin-Darby canine kidney) culture cells, which are used in vaccine production and virus research. Magnification: x29, 500 when printed 10cm wide

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from Science Photo Library showcases the Avian flu virus, specifically strain H5N1. The vibrant red influenza A virus particles are prominently displayed under a transmission electron microscope (TEM). Originally infecting poultry, this particular strain made its way to humans in Hong Kong back in 1997 through direct bird-human contact. The image also highlights the importance of Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) culture cells, shown in blue. These cells play a crucial role in vaccine production and virus research. With a magnification of x29,500 when printed at 10cm wide, every intricate detail of these cellular structures and viral particles is brought to life. While avian flu typically requires direct contact with infected birds for transmission, the emergence of new strains can lead to devastating epidemics that claim millions of lives. This occurs when different animal strains exchange genetic information, resulting in potent variations that pose significant threats to human health. This visually stunning photograph serves as a reminder of the ongoing battle against infectious diseases and emphasizes the critical role played by researchers and medical professionals working tirelessly to understand and combat such pathogens. Its presence within Science Photo Library's extensive collection further demonstrates their commitment to providing valuable resources for scientific exploration and education.
