This article deals with the toxicological study of synthesized CdO nanoparticles (NPs) on Escherichia coli. Characterization of the CdO NPs was done by DLS, XRD, TEM and AFM studies and the average size of NPs was revealed as 22±3 nm. The NPs showed bactericidal activity against E. coli. When NPs were added at mid-log phase of growth, complete growth inhibitory concentration was found 40 μg/mL. Bacterial cells changed morphological features to filamentous form with increasing CdO NPs exposure time, thereafter resulted in filamentation associated clumping. From AFM study severe damage of the cell surface was found in CdO NPs treated cells. CdO NPs were found to interfere with the expression level of two conserved cell division component, namely ftsZ and ftsQ in E. coli both at transcriptional and translational level. Interference of CdO NPs in proper septum formation without affecting the nucleoid segregation was also observed in confocal micrographs. The elevated intracellular oxidative stress due to CdO NPs exposure seems to be one of the reasons for the changes in cell morphology and expression of division proteins in E. coli.
