synthetase for protein labeling
Expression of a mutant
methionyl-tRNA synthetase derived from Escherichia coli could be
useful for producing modified variants of therapeutic proteins. The mutant E.
coli methionyl-tRNA synthetase was expressed in a human cell line and
designed to incorporate azidonorleucine at the N-terminus of
proteins. In the same human cell line, supplementation with azidonorleucine
led to the synthesis of azidonorleucine-labeled proteins that were detectable
with mass spectrometry. Next steps could include generating therapeutic
proteins that are fluorescently labeled or have improved pharmacological
