A Click-and-Release Pyrrolysine Analogue

Authors


Abstract

What's the catch? A pyrrolysine analogue bearing a terminal alkyne and an ester functionality can be incorporated into recombinant proteins and render them amenable to capture by the click reaction and subsequent release through ester hydrolysis. The utility of this pyrrolysine-inspired technology is demonstrated for the identification of SUMOylation sites.
