It has been suggested that ethanol metabolism in the strict anaerobe Clostridium kluyveri occurs within a metabolosome, a subcellular proteinaceous bacterial microcompartment. Two bacterial microcompartment shell proteins [EtuA (ethanol utilization shell protein A) and EtuB] are found encoded on the genome clustered with the genes for ethanol utilization. The function of the bacterial microcompartment is to facilitate fermentation by sequestering the enzymes, substrates and intermediates… Expand
Substrate channels revealed in the trimeric Lactobacillus reuteri bacterial microcompartment shell protein PduB.
TLDR
The presence of glycerol on the molecular threefold symmetry axis suggests a role in locking closed the central region of the propanediol-utilization metabolosome. Expand
Structural Insight into the Clostridium difficile Ethanolamine Utilisation Microcompartment
TLDR
The work presented provides the basis for further study of the architecture and function of the C. difficile eut microcompartment, its role in metabolism and the wider consequences of intestinal colonisation and virulence in this pathogen. Expand
Assembly of robust bacterial microcompartment shells using building blocks from an organelle of unknown function.

Structural Insights into Higher Order Assembly and Function of the Bacterial Microcompartment Protein PduA*
TLDR
The results support the view that the hexamer-hexamer interactions seen in PduA crystals persist in the cytoplasmic structures and reveal the profound influence of the two key amino acids, Lys-26 and Arg-79, on tiling, not only in the crystal lattice but also in the bacterial cy toplasm. Expand

TLDR
A crystal structure of this shell is determined to guide rational engineering of this microcompartment shell for biotechnological applications and reducing symmetry from 6- to 3-fold will allow for finer control of the pore environment. Expand

TLDR
The location of a metal redox cofactor in the pore of a shell protein suggests a novel mechanism for either transferring redox equivalents across the shell or for regenerating luminal [Fe-S] clusters. Expand

It is shown that the 21 gene regulon specifying the pdu organelle and propanediol utilization enzymes from Citrobacter freundii is fully functional when cloned in Escherichia coli, both producing metabolosomes and allowing propanedol utilization. Expand
Crystal structure of the EutL shell protein of the ethanolamine ammonia lyase microcompartment
TLDR
The characteristic shape of the hexagonal tile, which is also found in the microcompartments of carbon-fixating bacteria, may present an inherent and fundamental building unit that may provide a general explanation for the formation of differently sized microcom partments. Expand

Protein-based organelles in bacteria: carboxysomes and related microcompartments
TLDR
The carboxysome, a prototypical bacterial microcompartment that is found in cyanobacteria and some chemoautotrophs, encapsulates ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase and carbonic anhydrase, and thereby enhances carbon fixation by elevating the levels of CO2 in the vicinity of RuBisCO.

Structure of the PduU shell protein from the Pdu microcompartment of Salmonella.
TLDR
Though PduU is a hexamer like other characterized shell proteins, it has undergone a circular permutation leading to dramatic differences in the hexamer pore, suggesting the possibility of a special functional role in the hypothesis that microcompartment metabolites diffuse across the outer shell through these pores.
