An engineered lantipeptide synthetase serves as a general leader peptide-dependent kinase.


PMID 23001385

Abstract

Phosphorylation is an abundant post-translational modification involved in a myriad of cell signaling pathways. Herein, we have engineered the class II lantipeptide synthetase ProcM to generate a variety of peptides containing O-phosphoserine (pSer) and O-phosphothreonine (pThr) residues, either in vitro or in vivo.
