Abstract
The amino acids 4-(tert-butyl)phenylalanine (Tbf) and 4-(trimethylsilyl)phenylalanine (TMSf), as well as a partially deuterated version of Tbf (dTbf), were chemically synthesized and site-specifically incorporated into different proteins, using an amber stop codon, suppressor tRNA and the broadband aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase originally evolved for the incorporation of p-cyano-phenylalanine. The 1H-NMR signals of the tert-butyl and TMS groups were compared to the 1H-NMR signal of tert-butyltyrosine (Tby) in protein systems with molecular weights ranging from 8 to 54*kDa. The 1H-NMR resonance of the TMS group appeared near 0*ppm in a spectral region with few protein resonances, facilitating the observation of signal changes in response to ligand binding. In all proteins, the R 2 relaxation rate of the tert-butyl group of Tbf was only little greater than that of Tby (less than two-fold). Deuteration of the phenyl ring of Tbf made only a relatively small difference. The effective T 2 relaxation time of the TMS signal was longer than 140*ms even in the 54*kDa system.
