Helicobacter pylori bacteria, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). H. pylori is a Gram-negative spiral-shaped bacterium found in the mucus lining of the stomach. It causes gastritis, and is also the most common cause of stomach ulcers. It may also be a cause or co-factor for gastric cancer as its presence increases the risk of developing stomach tumours.
The cancer cell's pink mitochondria and gold endoplasmic reticulum--a network of vesicles and sacs--swirl around a dark nucleus. The rendering was awarded an honorable mention in the illustration category of the 2008 International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge. Donald Bliss and Sriram Subramaniam of the National Institutes of Health's National Library of Medicine created the image by "sandblasting" the cell with ions of the element gallium.
