Title: Structure of a novel 13 nm dodecahedral nanocage assembled from a redesigned bacterial microcompartment shell protein

Abstract

In this paper, we report the crystal structure of a novel 60-subunit dodecahedral cage that results from self-assembly of a re-engineered version of a natural protein (PduA) from the Pdu microcompartment shell. Biophysical data illustrate the dependence of assembly on solution conditions, opening up new applications in microcompartment studies and nanotechnology.
