Three ring posttranslational circuses: insertion of oxazoles, thiazoles, and pyridines into protein-derived frameworks.

Abstract

Nitrogen heterocycles are the key functional and structural elements in both RNA and DNA, in half a dozen of the most important coenzymes, and in many synthetic drug scaffolds. On the other hand, only 3 of 20 proteinogenic amino acids have nitrogen heterocycles: proline, histidine, and tryptophan. This inventory can be augmented in microbial proteins by… (More)
