Diagram describing the meningococcal cycle during cerebrospinal meningitis.
Clinical observations of meningococcemia. Semi-fine choroid plexus of a patient who died from purpura fulminans. Bacteria interacting with endothelial cells.
Meningococcus in 3D
Three-dimensional recreation of meningococcus (red), produced from a series of images captured by confocal microscopy.
Photo taken by scanning electron microscopy of a colony of Neisseria meningitidis bacteria adhering to a Human Umbilical Vascular Endothelial Cell, endothelial cells isolated from the vein of an umbilical cord.
Endothelial cells infected for four hours by meningococcus, in blue. Marking with actin in green and with paxillin in red.
