HPLC-free synthesis slashes protein production time

Written by William Bergius for Chemistry World

Chemists in Germany have devised a faster, cheaper and greener way to synthesise proteins which avoids the need to use high pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC).

Being able to chemically synthesise proteins from scratch allows them to be modified with atom-by-atom precision, and in ways that are not possible in nature. For example, researchers can introduce non-natural amino acids into proteins or tag them with fluorescent markers.
