Lanthanide tags for site-specific ligation to an unnatural amino acid and generation of pseudocontact shifts in proteins
Pseudocontact shifts (PCS) from paramagnetic lanthanide ions present powerful long-range structural restraints for structural biology by NMR spectroscopy, but site-specific tagging of proteins with lanthanides remains a challenge, as most of the available lanthanide tags require proteins with single cysteine residues. We show that cyclen-based paramagnetic lanthanide tags can be attached to proteins in a site-specific manner by Cu(I)-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition to a genetically encoded...[Show more]
