      A photocaged   Nε-methyl-L-lysine   has been genetically incorporated into proteins at amber codon   positions in Escherichia coli using an evolved   pyrrolysyl-tRNA synthetase-pylT pair. Its genetic incorporation   and following photolysis to recover   Nε-methyl-L-lysine   at physiological pH provide a convenient method for the   biosynthesis of proteins with monomethylated lysines at specific   sites.
