Congeneric bio-adhesive mussel foot proteins designed by modified prolines revealed a chiral bias in unnatural translation.

Abstract

Chiral bias in the unnatural translation and 'sticky' mussel proteins. The residue-specific in vivo incorporation of hydroxylated amino acids as well as other synthetic analogs, such as fluoroprolines, emerges as the method of choice for recombinant synthesis of Pro-rich mussel adhesive protein congeners. Chemical diversifications introduced in this way… (More)
