Figure 2

The S. rubra encapsulin monomer can self-assemble into a spherical polymer 25 nm in diameter. (a) Protein gel electrophoresis reveals that a protein with the predicted molecular mass (34 kDa) of the S. rubra encapsulin can be expressed in and isolated from E. coli lysate. Enc 1 refers to a protein beginning at the first of two possible translation start sites, Enc 2 refers to a protein that begins at the second site. (b) TEM imaging of a solution containing purified S. rubra encapsulin reveals that the S. rubra encapsulin monomer self-assembles into a spherical polymer with a diameter of 25 nm.
