TALENT: Non-Natural Amino Acids for Protein Engineering and New Protein Chemistries

Inchan Kwon,* Sung In Lim

Two distinct strategies, residue-specific and site-specific incorporation, allow biosynthesis of a protein containing non-natural amino acids. Non-natural amino acids introduced into a protein can be used to manipulate spectral and catalytic properties of a protein and provide new protein chemistries for bioconjugation with versatile molecules.
