Wang, Y. S., Russell, W. K.,Wang, Z., Y., Wan, W., Dodd, L. E., ,Pai, P. J., Russell, D. H. and Liu, W., The Denovo engineering of pyrrolysyl-tRNA synthetase for genetic incorporation ofL-phenylalanine and its derivatives. Mol. Biosyst. 2011, 7, 714-716.
Using evolved pyrrolysyl-tRNA synthetase–tRNAPylCUA pairs, L-phenylalanine, p-iodo-L-phenylalanine and p-bromo-L-phenylalanine have been genetically incorporated into proteins at amber mutation sites in E. coli.
