Highly sensitive: The azido analogue of methionine, azidohomoalanine (see picture), is shown to be a sensitive IR probe of protein structure, folding, and electrostatics, as demonstrated for ribosomal protein NTL9. It can be readily incorporated in to proteins, and the azido frequency is significantly blue-shifted in the thermally unfolded state.
