Mycobacterium ulcerans, the etiological agent of Buruli ulcer, displays an abundant extracellular matrix that confers advantages to the mycobacteria in colonizing various ecological niches successfully (see Marsollier et al, e62). This scanning electron micrograph shows vesicles purified by immunomagnetic particle separation from an infected mouse tissue. Scale bar: 0.8 µm.
