Engineers create bacteria that can synthesize an unnatural amino acid

Scientists engineered bacteria to produce pN-Phe, a non-standard amino acid with potential medical applications. Future work will optimize this process and explore its potential in vaccines and immunotherapies. The findings, which were published in the journal Chemical biology of naturelay the foundations for the future development of unique vaccines and immunotherapies. Amino acids serve as …
