Genetic incorporation of unnatural amino acids into proteins

Ugwumba, Isaac Nnamdi


The introduction of unnatural amino acids with novel properties into proteins is potentially a useful tool for understanding and manipulating their functions. The development of an in vitro method for the incorporation of a fluorescent amino acid L-(7-hydroxycoumarin-4-yl)ethylglycine (Hco), into proteins is described here. An S30 extract was produced from E. coli culture containing a plasmid that encodes an evolved aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase specific for Hco (CouRS) and a suppressor tRNA...[Show more]
