Electron microscopy has provided valuable insights into the study of rickettsiae as intracellular parasites from several important perspectives. This tool has allowed researchers to delineate the fine structural features of these organisms and to show that they truly resemble free-living bacteria. Furthermore, it has been shown that there are subtle, but distinct differences in the outer envelope structure of some members of the genus Rickettsia that may explain reported differences in… CONTINUE READING
