Abstract:

Chemical modifications on certain amino acids can result in diverse effects on protein structures and functions.For this, numerous strategies have been developed for site-specific or residue-specific protein modifications.Here we summarize the latest progresses on proteinmodification based on canonical amino acids such as cysteine, tyrosine and N-terminus.

Key words: Protein-modification, Canonical amino acid, Cysteine, Tyrosine
