Optimized orthogonal translation of unnatural amino acids enables spontaneous protein double-labelling and FRET
The ability to introduce different biophysical probes into defined positions in target proteins will provide powerful approaches for interrogating protein structure, function and dynamics. However,Expand

Evolved orthogonal ribosomes enhance the efficiency of synthetic genetic code expansion
In vivo incorporation of unnatural amino acids by amber codon suppression is limited by release factor-1–mediated peptide chain termination. Orthogonal ribosome-mRNA pairs function in parallel with,Expand

Robust manufacturing and comprehensive characterization of recombinant hepatitis E virus-like particles in Hecolin(®).
The hepatitis E virus (HEV) vaccine, Hecolin(®), was licensed in China for the prevention of HEV infection and HEV-related diseases with demonstrated safety and efficacy [1,2]. The vaccine isExpand

Total synthesis of Escherichia coli with a recoded genome
Nature uses 64 codons to encode the synthesis of proteins from the genome, and chooses 1 sense codon—out of up to 6 synonyms—to encode each amino acid. Synonymous codon choice has diverse andExpand

Concerted, Rapid, Quantitative, and Site-Specific Dual Labeling of Proteins
Rapid, one-pot, concerted, site-specific labeling of proteins at genetically encoded unnatural amino acids with distinct small molecules at physiological pH, temperature, and pressure is an importantExpand

Defining synonymous codon compression schemes by genome recoding
Synthetic recoding of genomes, to remove targeted sense codons, may facilitate the encoded cellular synthesis of unnatural polymers by orthogonal translation systems. However, our limitedExpand

Structural basis for the neutralization of hepatitis E virus by a cross-genotype antibody
Hepatitis E virus (HEV), a non-enveloped, positive-sense, single-stranded RNA virus, is a major cause of enteric hepatitis. Classified into the family Hepeviridae, HEV comprises four genotypesExpand

Bacteria expressed hepatitis E virus capsid proteins maintain virion-like epitopes.
The protein encoded by ORF2 in hepatitis E virus (HEV) is the only capsid protein for this single-stranded RNA virus. It was previously shown that 148 aa (aa 459-606) was needed for dimer formation,Expand
