Protein modification by O-linked β-N-acetylglucosamine (O-GlcNAc) is emerging as an important factor in the pathogenesis of sporadic Alzheimer's disease (AD); however, detailed molecular characterization of this important protein post-translational modification at the proteome level has been highly challenging, owing to...

The site-specific incorporation of non-canonical amino acids (ncAAs) at amber codons requires an aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase and a cognate amber suppressor tRNA (tRNACUA ). The archaeal tyrosyl-tRNA synthetase from Methanocaldococcus jannaschii and the pyrrolysyl-tRNA synthetase (PylRS) from Methanosarcina mazei have been...

Bacteria have developed various mechanisms by which they sense, interact, and kill other bacteria, in an attempt to outcompete one another and survive. Here we show that Bacillus subtilis can kill and prey on Bacillus megaterium. We find that Bacillus...

The copper-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition (CuAAC) reaction, optimized for biological molecules in aqueous buffers, has been shown to rapidly label mammalian cells in culture with no loss in cell viability. Metabolic uptake and display of the azide derivative of N-acetylmannosamine developed...
