Zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO NPs) induce transient morphological transformation of Escherichia coli from the native 2-4 μm rod-shaped into 20-40 μm filamentous cells. The response is unique to the Trojan horse-type internalization of undissolved solids of ZnO NPs, whereby subsequent zinc leaching occurs intracellularly.
