High-yield cell-free protein synthesis for site-specific incorporation of unnatural amino acids at two sites

Ozawa, Kiyoshi; Loscha, Karin; Kuppan, Kekini V; Loh, Choy; Dixon, Nicholas Edward; Otting, Gottfried


Using aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase/suppressor tRNA pairs derived from Methanocaldococcus jannaschii, an Escherichia coli cell-free protein production system affords proteins with site-specifically incorporated unnatural amino acids (UAAs) in high yields through the use of optimized amber suppressor tRNACUAopt and optimization of reagent concentrations. The efficiency of the cell-free system allows the incorporation of trifluoromethyl-phenylalanine using a polyspecific synthetase evolved previously...[Show more]
