Bacterial microcompartments (BMCs) represent proteinaceous macromolecular

associated with either anabolic or catabolic processes. They consist of a semipermeable

providing both enhanced flux and protection against toxic intermediates.

of altogether new pathways. Deconstruction of BMCs into their component parts has

further modified into a cytoplasmic scaffold to which enzymes/proteins can be

engineering of biological systems for useful purposes.
