eutN has been characterized in (Brinsmade, 2005). The ethanolamine catabolic microcompartment, also called a carboxysome or metabolosome, is thought to help contain the volatile acetaldehdye intermediate (Penrod, 2006). The crystal structure of EutN from E. coli CFT073 is in PDB 2HD3 (Forouhar, 2007).
