Biotin is one of the most useful tags in (bio)analytical science due to its specific interaction with avidin, but is not easy to convert because of its low solubility in most solvents. Friedel-Crafts acylation of biotin acid chloride in triflic acid was examined, and the synthesized derivatives had stronger affinity to avidin than biotin in a binding assay(More)
Photoaffinity labeling is a reliable analytical method for biological functional analysis. Three major photophores--aryl azide, benzophenone and trifluoromethyldiazirine--are utilized in analysis. Photophore-bearing L-phenylalanine derivatives, which are used for biological functional analysis, were inoculated into a Klebsiella sp. isolated from the(More)
