Modifying proteins via radical chemistry

from Chemical & Engineering News

Researchers have devised a simple method called chemical mutagenesis that modifies proteins at specific sites. It is the first general technique for creating new C–C bond linkages in proteins and allows chemists to add a wide range of modifying groups: new sidechains, including unnatural ones; so-called posttranslational modifications that cells normally add enzymatically, including methyl groups and phosphates; and individual or chains of sugars. more
