N-Myristoyl transferase-mediated labelling using a substrate modified with an azide or alkyne tag is described as an efficient and site-selective method for the introduction of a bioorthogonal tag at the N-terminus of a recombinant protein. The procedure may be performed in vitro, or in a single over-expression/tagging step in vivo in bacteria; tagged(More)
Type II fatty acid biosynthesis represents an attractive target for the discovery of new antimalarial drugs. Previous studies have identified malarial ENR (enoyl acyl-carrier-protein reductase, or FabI) as the target for the antiseptic triclosan. In the present paper, we report the biochemical properties and 1.5 A (1 A=0.1 nm) crystal structure of OAR(More)
N-Myristoyl transferase-mediated modification with azide-bearing substrates is introduced as a highly selective and practical method for in vitro and in vivo N-terminal labelling of a recombinant protein using bioorthogonal ligation chemistry.
