This part consists of four basic part, pduAB, pduJK, pduN and pduTUV. This part encode all proteins used for construct pdu BMC(bacterial microcompartment). All these genes belong to pdu operon, which consist of 21 genes. Some of these genes encode enzymes involved in the utilization of propanediol as carbon resource. Other genes like pduA encode structure proteins, which by unknown method assemble into a large icosahedral protein complex. There are also other similar type of metabolic protein complex, such as carboxysome and ethanolamine utilization complex. They are all belong to BMC(bacterial microcompartment).
